The Book of Praise,
The ways all rugged and perplex'd
He renders smooth and straight, And strengthens every feeble knee
To march to Zion's gate.
Through all the path I'll sing His Name,
Till I the Mount ascend, Where toils and storms are known no more.
And anthems never end !
Philifa Doddridge. 175 5.

THE COMMUNION OF SAINTS.
' The Communion of Saints " {Apostles* Creed).
cxxx.
When Christ the Lord would come on earth, His messenger before Him went,
The greatest born of mortal birth
And charged with words of deep intent.
The least of all that here attend Hath honour greater far than he ;
He was the Bridegroom's joyful friend, His Body and His Spouse are we.
A higher race, the sons of light,
Of water and the Spirit born ; He the last star of parting night,
And we the children of the morn.
