ODE ON THE NEW YEAR.
Unperceiv'd the moments fly; Cheer'd my wakeful hours with light,
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,
Finish the last year with songo
- Psalm ciy. 24.
Makt. xvi. fi
Attends on the dawn of the year :
The gloom of affliction severe!
Their aspect with sorrow remarks
of times that grow stormy and dark!
Aloud sounds the trumpet of war,
The chains of the demon are broke;
His thousands mows down with a stroke!
He drives down the mighty and strong,
That sweeps with destruction along !
What portion on earth is secure !
A Monarch, to-morrow he poor!
A night, and our griefs may be o'er !
A moment, and we are no more!
When Nature and Time shall expire :
And Earth be refin'd in bis fire !
The worlds by his providence sways;
And finish the work to his praise !
Thou Shield of thy people of old !
To shelter the sheep of thy fold !
And mountains plunge into the sea,
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!
