1. An Addrefs to the Deity. Thomson.

FATHER of light and life! Thou GOOD
O teach me what is good. Teach me THYSELF!
Save me from folly, vanity, and vice,
From every low purfuit! and feed my foul
With knowledge, conicious peace, and virtue
Sacred, iubitantial, never-fading blifs! [pure;

§ 2. Adam and Eve, in a Morning Hymn, call u all the Parts of the Creation to join with them extoling their common Maker. Milton. THESE are Thy glorious works, Parent of good, Almighty, thine this univerfal frame, Thus wondrous fair, thyfelf how wondrous then! Unspeakable, who fitt it above thefe Heavens To us invisible, or dimly feen

In these thy lowest works; yet these declare Thy goodness beyond thought, and pow'r divine. Speak ye who beft can tell, ye fons of light, Anges; for ye behold him, and with fongs And choral fymphonies, day without night, Circle his throne rejoicing; ye in Heaven, On Earth, join all ye creatures to extol Hat, him laft, him midit, and without end. Fairest of itars, lait in the train of night, If better thou belong not to the dawn, Sure pledge of day, that crown'ft the fimiling morn Why bright circlet, praife him in thy fphere, Wille day antes, that fweet hour of prime. Thou S of this great world both eye and foul, Acknowedge him thy greater, found his praife In thy eternal courfe, both when thou climb'ft, And when high noon haft gain'd, and when thou fall A.

Moon, that now meet'ft the orient fun, now fly'ft With the fix'd ftars, fix'd in their orb that flies,

And ye five other wand'ring fires that move
In myftic dance, not without fong, refound
His praife, who out of darkness call'd up light.
Air, and ye elements, the eldest birth
Of Nature's womb, that in quaternion run
Perpetual circle, multiform; and mix

And nourish all things; let your ceafelefs change
Ye Mifts and Exhalations that now rife
Vary to our great Maker ftill new praise.
From hill or streaming lake, dusky or grey,
Till the fun paint your fleecy fkirts with gold,
In honour to the world's great Author rife!
Whether to deck with clouds th' uncolour'd iky,
Rifing or falling ftill advance his praife.
Or wet the thirty earth with falling fhowers,
Breathe foft or loud, and wave your tops, ye Pines,
His praife,ye Winds,that from four quarters blow,
With every plant in fign of worship wave.
Fountains, and ye that warble as ye flow
Melodious murmurs, warbling tune his praife.
Join voices, all ye living Souls; ye Birds,
That finging up to Heaven's gate afcend,
Bear on your wings and in your notes his praise.
Ye that in waters glide, and ye that walk
The earth, and ftately tread, or lowly creep;
Witnefs if I be filent, morn or even,
To hill or valley, fountain, or fresh thade
Made vocal by my fong, and taught his praife.
Hail univerfal Lord! be bounteous ftill
To give us only good; and if the night
Have gather'd aught of evil, or conceal'd,
Difperfe it, as now light difpels the dark.

3. On the Deity.

Mrs. Barbauld. I READ God's awful name emblazon'd high, With golden letters on th' illumin'd sky; Nor lefs the mystic characters I fee, Wrought in each flower, infcrib'd on ev'ry tree;
