ODE ON THE NEW YEAR.

THE PAST.
Hitherio, the Lord has helped me. -- I Sam. vii. 12,
GENTLY glides our life away : Love bestow'd my daily bread,

Unperceiv'd the moments fly; Cheer'd my wakeful hours with light,
As, at op’ning Summer's day, Safely round my slumb'ring head
Dew-drops vanish in the sky !

Drew the curtains of the night: Lo! another year is gone,

Love, when faiating, rais'd me up, Added to the thousands past! Sooth’d my sorrows, chac'd my fears, And the present hastens on,

Sweeten'd ev'ry bitter cup, Urging Time to reach his last! Eas'd my pairs and dry'd my tears! When we view departed years,

Love hath smooth'd my rugged way, Mingled grief and praises flow : All my waud'ring steps forgave; Heav'niy love throughout appears,

Found me when I went astray, Mix'd with human guilt and woe ! Kind to seek, and strong to saxe! Unaccustom'd to the yoke,

Thus far safely led along,
Ephraim murmur'd when reprov'd; I my Ebenezer raise ;
Yet beneath the bitter stroke

Finish the last year with songo
Ephraim was a child belov'd. And begin the next with praise!

THE PRESENT,
The Earth is full of thy Riches.

- Psalm ciy. 24.
Oh! thou who hast made me, and kept me till now,
Sustain'd by thy goodness, before thee I bow:
What tongue can be silent while years as they roll,
Still bring thy new blessings for body and soul!
Around me, above me, beneath me, I trace
Fresh proofs of thy wisdom, and power, and grace!
The stars in their courses thy glories proclaim,
Forever upfolding, yet ever the same!
The blast of the Winter was temper'd by thee;
The bloom of the Spring thou didst hang on each tree;
The bright beams of Summer thou madest to glow;
T'he harvests of Autuma thine hands did bestow!
The truth of thy gospel still sounds in the land;
Thy church on a rock, like a bulwark, doth stand :
The plants of thy vineyard still fruitfully grow,
And glory shines down on the valley below!
The rain may fall heavy, the storm may be high,
The cold dreary winter of age may draw bigh;
Yet saints, like the lily, shail flourish agains
For life in the root shall for ever remain!
Oh, teach me, while yet it is called Today,
The voice of thy mercy to bear and obey;
To live in thy favour and walk in thy fear,
Thus wisely beginning a happy New Year!

THE FUTUBE.
Car ye not discern the Signs of the Times !

Makt. xvi. fi
As Winter, all gloviny and cold,

Attends on the dawn of the year :
So thick'ning around we behold

The gloom of affliction severe!
We look to the signs of the sky,

Their aspect with sorrow remarks
For lo! the sad tokens are aigh

of times that grow stormy and dark!

Aloud sounds the trumpet of war,

The chains of the demon are broke;
And Death, in his scythe-armed car,

His thousands mows down with a stroke!
Triumphant through regions of blood

He drives down the mighty and strong,
O'erwhelming the world like a flood

That sweeps with destruction along !
Ah, who of to-morrow can boast!

What portion on earth is secure !
To-morrow may vanquish an host,

A Monarch, to-morrow he poor!
A day, -and our joys may be fed !

A night, and our griefs may be o'er !
An hour, - and we join with the dead!

A moment, and we are no more!
Soon, soon shall the season appear

When Nature and Time shall expire :
The Sun shall be pluck'd from his sphere,

And Earth be refin'd in bis fire !
The God at whose fiat they rose,

The worlds by his providence sways;
His pleasure the system shall close,

And finish the work to his praise !
Oh! teach us in thee to confide,

Thou Shield of thy people of old !
For thou canst a refuge provide

To shelter the sheep of thy fold !
Though Earth to its centre should quake,

And mountains plunge into the sea,
Thou wilt not thy children forsake,
Who fly, through a Saviour, to thee! ALIQUIS.

A REFLECTION ON THE CLOSE OF THE YEAR.
Ye creatures of a day! can you rejoice

That all-important Time so swiftly flies ? And scorn Reflection's monitory voice,

That calls, that warns, that wooes you, to be wise? For ever, ye departed months, adieu!

What heart that knows your value can be gay? That by reflections forced, tho' loth to view,

How unimprov'd the hours are fled away! Yet oft the warping voice (before they fled)

Cry'd,“ Seize the precious minutes! make them thine ! , Ah, how wilt thou account for so much waste

Of treasure, leot for purposes divipe!" Thy voice, Reflection, now resolvid, I hear;

To thee the solema midnight now I give! And ask, while musing on the finish'd year,

How have I spent my time ? - and why I live ? “ How have I spent my time ?"- Reflection, say:

She answers, Wasted many a precious hour ; And thrown, in careless indolence, away

The days which claim'd for God each active power!" Why do I live? 66 Past errors to deplore,

And humbly at thy Saviour's cross to bowi To ask his aid, and all his grace implore :

To dedicate to him the present Now.". Then 0, my Lord, to thy atoning blood

For pardon, peace, and pow'r I meekly fly! Forgive my follies past: then, O my God,

Tåstruct me how to live, and how to die!
