In Time of War.
And death and ruin strew the ground;
2 Thou, who hast stamped on human kind
The image of a heaven-born mind,
Hast cherished all the kindred race;
Thy sons their impious battles wage;
4 See guilty passions spring to birth,
And deeds of hell deform the earth;
5 Great God! whose powerful hand can bind
The raging waves, the furious wind,

The Shortness of Life. 1 While with ceaseless course the sun .
Hasted through the closing year,
Never more to meet us here!
They have done with all below;
But how little none can know. 3 As the winged arrow flies
Quick, the destined mark to find;
Darts, and leaves no trace behind. 4 So our brief and transient days
To their end speed swiftly on;
Here to-day, to-morrow gone.
Pardon of our sins renew;
With eternity in view.
Fill our hearts with filial love;

Reflections on the Death of Jesus.
With pious grief improve,
Of Jesus' dying love.

His pity could subdue;
They know not what they do.' 3 O what a love was here displayed,

We will obedient prove; Around his table will we stand,
In memory of his love,
2 His precious blood he shed
For our unworthy race, While uttering in the Almighty's stead
His messages of grace. 3 O, if our senseless pride
His dying words neglect,
And we who God reject !
This consecrated feast, 'Till memory shall have sunk to sleep,
Or life itself have ceased.

Broilerly Kindness from the Precept and Example of Christ.
i Ye followers of the Prince of peace,
Who round bis table draw!
What his peculiar law.
? The love, which all his bosom filled,
Did all his actions guide;
Inspired by love, he died.
3 Let all the sacred law fulfil ;
Like his be every mind ;
And every action kind. 4 Let none, who call themselves his friends,
Disgrace the honoured name;
