ODE ON TIME.
Ere time-O who can stretch a thought
Whose wisdom fills the radient throne !
Unbounded love, th' Eternal Cause,
Self-mov'd, omnipotent divine;
The system moves, the orbits form,
Th' eternal principle of life,
He will deliver us from harm.

"And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river was the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were For the healing of the nations."
The tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which grew also in the midst of the garden, was then, no doubt, what it is now, which we may understand by the following scriptures. Rom. viii. 20, «For the creature was made subject to vanity, not wilingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope." vii. 23, "But I see another law in my members warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members." In this place perhaps It will be well to notice the two trees as represented by St. Paul In this 7th Chapter to the Romans, by two laws. In the 12th worse he says, " Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandnent holy, and just and good." Verse 14, For we know that he law is spiritual; but I am carnal, sold under sin." Verse 16, "If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good." Verse 21, "I find then a law, that when I would do good, evil is present with me." This law has been noticed from the 23d verse. In chap. 8th. 2, These laws are noticed in such a way as to give a clear idea of their powers and nature. For the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death."
