Humiliation. Joel ii. 13--17.
The congregation gather'd be ;
To worship on the suppliant knee. 2 In one assembly let them bend,
Together hear the sacred word ;
Aod turn their face to serve the Lord. 3 Let priests, the ministers of God,
Between the porch and altar weep;
That God would spare his wand'ring sheep. 4 The Lord is merciful and just,
His kindness he hath ever shown ;
In him let all the oatiops trust,
For in the Lord we live alone.
His blessings down upon our race ?

The Sun of Righteousness.
bright that sun that makes our day!
How powerful is each quick’oing ray! To distant lands and worlds unknown
His life-creating beams bave flown. 2 The light of Christ is brighter far;
Compar'd with him, the sun's a star
And with a clearer lustre shine.
By Christ illum'd, than the north pole,
And night and cold succeed the day4 And colder too are our dead hearts,
Till he his warming beams imparts;
Like limped streams from ice and snow. 5 No more impartial is the sun
To planets which around bim turn,
Fills earth below, and heaven above.
Soft zephyrs breathe and buds unfold,
Sweet birds are heard and flowers are seen..

The power of Darkness.
And night with murky clouds combines, The pilgriin oft his way mistakes ;
For the wrong road, the right forsakes. 2 The toils of error now come on,
The pilgrim's hope of rest is gone,
And beasts of prey are bowling round. 3 Grim spectres gleam before his eyes,
Despairing thoughts within him rise,
And fancy sees destruction there. 4 An ignis fatuus in the glen,
To the lone wand'rer proves a gin ;
And helpless sinks in fatal mire. 5 But superstition's darker gloom
Has caus'd our wand'ring hearts to roam,
Where love and grace forever shine. 6 And more severe the toils we find,
Far more distress'd the fearful mind,
In error's wild disorder'd dream. 8 And more deceptive is the fire,
Which false religious views inspire ;
