ORIGINAL POETRY.

TO MY FATHER IN HEAVEN.

I would not wish thee back again,

My sainted father-no!
Thou wilt not come again to us,

But we to thee shall go;
If we believe, like thee, in him,

Who bled for us and died,
We shall with thee for ever dwell,

In glory at thy side.
I would not take away from thee

Thy garments, pure and white ;
I would not rob thee of that crown,

So radiant and so bright;
I would not make thee walk by faith

Instead of sight again;
I would not fetch thee back into

A world of sin and pain.
We shall sing with thee his praises who

Redeemed thee with his blood,
Who made thee meet in heaven to dwell

For ever near thy God;
We shall walk with thee in robes of white,

In those celestial plains,
And dwell with thee around his throne

Who ever lives and reigns.
Then since we're passing onward to

That glorious rest above,
And since we hope to meet again

In that fair world of love ;
Aud though thou wilt not come to us,

Yet we to thee shall go ;
I would not wish thee back again-
My sainted father-no!

E. R. S.

BEFORE PRAYER.

Jehovah Jesus, condescend

To listen to my prayer ;
Do thou before the mercy-seat,

My faint petitions bear.
No glittering language would I use,

When I approach to thee;
The language of the heart alone,

Best speaks its agony.
Yes, though the lips be sealed with guilt,

And sins benumb the frame;
If but the heart in sobs and sighs,

Can breathe the Saviour's name-
Far more acceptable that sigh,

More eloquent that groan ;
Than all the oratory used

Before the mercy-throne.
To thee petition then I bring,

Lord, lend a listening ear ;
Oh, shed the light of life within !
Ah, melt my soul in prayer !

“THE GARDEN OF THE LORD.”

Isaiah, li. 3.

Zion, the garden of the Lord,
Planted and cultured by his word,
Presents a banquet, rich and fair-
The produce of his tender care.
There all the flowers of grace combine
To mingle beauties most divine;
There they unveil their lovely forms-
A thousand complicated charms.

There faith, and love, and patience, grow,
The sweetest buds we have below;
Their lovely hues and charming scents-
A cluster of embellishments.
They all reflect a Saviour's face,
In the pure mirror of his grace ;
They all reflect a Saviour's love-
Fount of felicity above.
Oh! in this garden may we stand,
Planted by God the Father's hand;
Beneath the sunbeams of his face
May we produce the fruits of grace.
