Two famous Statesmen *, and two Heroes brave +,
If polish'd manners, and if taste refin'd,
Lately, the Man of God exalted stood,

O much-respected, much-lamented friend,
Oft, as thy people tread the flow'ry fields,
Or walk liy gentle Avon's classic stream,

COMPOSED DURING ILLNESS. 'Tis true, here is another year; .
Alas! how frail our mortal frame ! And I'm permitted to appear
How near the grave we dwell! Before thee, and thy name revere, A sudden cough, a bursting vein,
My Jesus! And we must bid farewell! Tho' l’ve abus'd thy providence, My futt'ring heart,-why sink and beat Tho' long I've liv'd in indolence,
So briskly at the thought ? Yet in thy love me recompence,
Why shrink at what each mortal knows, My Jesus. "As though thou
As though thou knew'st it not? O that I had a glimpse of thee! It cannot be! Death's arrows tly O that I had but faith to see
Where'er thine eyes survey: Thy righteousuess transferr'd to me, Insatiable he gulps his meal
My Jesus! Of thousands in a day! But, O this vile deceitful heart,
Alas! tho’ friends and neighbours die, So loth with earthly joy to part,
Death is a stranger still ; I fear will make thee hence depart, And shrinking Nature shuts her eyes
My Jesus !
Against the dreaded ill. Then since in sio I am involv'd,
We shun the dart, we shun the sight, On thee be all my sins devolv’d,
We shun the place of Death, That I henceforth may be absolvid,
As tho' we never were to meet,
My Jesus. Or to resign our breath ! Sweetly permit me to confide
But let us view this monster near, In thee alooc, and none beside ;
Examine him anew; Ever be thou my God, my Guide, And from the good man's mortal couch
Take an impartial view. But here is no continued rest,
Here say, my soul, what terrors dwell: Earth is a wilderness at best;
Does fear distort his eyes ?
Does he view Death as sinners do?
With horrible surprize!
Calm and serene, he smiles to feel When this clay tenement shall fall,
The last dissevering pain; . And joy to crown thee Lord of All,
Just as the glimm’ring flame expires, My Jesus!
He whispers, “ Death is gain!" Till then, dear Lord, thy servant keep, Gain! yes, my soul, to die is gain, By night, by day, awake, asleep;
To those who are prepar'd : and place me with thy dear-bought They leave their sins, and pains, and sheep,
fears, Keep me dependent on thy grace,
Aud gain a rich reward ! Till I shall see thee face to face,
May I then seek this wond'rous gain! And be complete in thine embrace,
To Jesus let me fly!
