WOES OF INTEMPERANCE.                             29
32                        C. M.
DRINKERS AND SCOFFERS.
1     ALL ye who laugh and sport with death, And say there is no hell,
The gasp of your expiring breath, Will send you there to dwell.
2  When iron thunders bind your flesh,
With strange surprise you'll find, Immortal vigor spring afresh, And tortures wake the mind.
3  Then you'll confess, the frightful names
Of plagues you scorned before, No more shall look like idle dreams, Like foolish tales no more.
4  Then shall ye curse that fatal day,
With flames upon your tongue, When you exchanged your souls away, For vanity and songs.
Watts.
33                          L. M.
1    THROUGH all the various passing scenes
Of life's mistaken ill or good, Thy hand, O God! conducts unseen The beautiful vicissitude.
2  When lowest sunk with grief and shame,
Fill'd with afflictions bitter cup, Lost to relations, friends and fame, Thy powerful hand can raise us up.
3  Thy powerful consolations cheer,
Thy smiles suppress the deep fetch'd sigh, Thy hand can dry the trickling tear, That secret wets the widow's eve.
