Verfes, written by a Friend, in Memory of an amiable young Lady,


lately deceased.

HE open heart, the polish'd mind,
The manners gentle, kind, and free,

The fmile benign, the fenfe refin'd,
And native fenfibility:

[blocks in formation]

The tender paffions o'er thy tomb
With fond folicitude incline;
Soft pity weeps thy early doom,

And friendship bleeds at virtue's fhrine.

Is then thy gentle spirit flown?

Shall nought recall thy fleeting breath? Nor charms peculiarly thy own

Withhold the ruthless arm of death?

And must that liberal hand be cold,
That indigence fo warm hath found?
Its lenient aid fhall it withhold,

Nor deal beneficence around?

And shall that heart, for ever dead,
Indulge no more the wish to blefs?
And shall those eyes no longer fhed
The balm of pity on distress?

Myfterious providence! thy ways
O how unfearchable to man!
Why elfe to vice her length of days?
To virtue why fo fhort a fpan?

It is, that virtue trembling flies
From vice's rude contagious air?
Glad to refume her native skies,
And bid adieu to vanity and care.


PARAPHRASE of the 113th PSALM,


E faints, in willing, grateful lays,
Afcribe to God immortal praife;
Exalt his fame with fongs fublime,
In ev'ry land, in ev'ry clime;
From where the early orient gleam

Firft chears the world and gilus the stream,
To where the fun at eve of day
Purples the fky with parting ray.
O'er all his mighty power extends,
Ev'n to the earth's remoteft ends;
