16                            WOES OF INTEMPERANCE,
Through ten thousand channels flowing,,
Streams of mercy find their way, Life and health and joy bestowing, Making all around look gay;
O ye nations, Hail the long expected day.
3  Trees of life the banks adorning,
Yield their fruit to all around; Those w.bo eat are saved from mourning, Pleasure comes and hopes abound;
Fair their portion, Endless life with glory crown'd.
Kolly.
PART III.
WOES OF INTEMPERANCE.
16                    11s.
1          HARK ! hark ye ! O listen the sorrow and weep-
ing,
Which rise from the hovel where Misery reigns, To the howl of the winds a wild harmony keeping,
Which chills the warm life-blood that speeds thro* our veins !
2  Sad, sad is the story those accents are telling!
Like the wail of the dying it pierces the air ! Oh, what has so blasted that comfortless dwelling? The monster Intemperance is rioting there!
