In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works. In
doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sound speech, that can-
not be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be
ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.

TO THE MEMORY OF ONE LATELY DEPARTED.

F ever hearts were rent by ruthless death,

If ever tears of desolate grief were shed,

It was by those who watched thy parting breath,
And saw thee dead!

But if assurance of eternal rest

Ere brought to broken hearts its heavenly peace,—

Telling the mourners that the soul is blest
By death's release:

Calming the wild distraction of the brain,
The rushing tears, the speechless agony !—
It was the glorious thought, that death was gai
When thou didst die!

Death had no terrors for thy stedfast soul,-
No sting from cherished and unpardoned sin:
No power of evil there, with dark control,

Ruled all within.
