TEMPERANCE REFORM.
39                           S. M.
1       THE temp'rance trumpet blow,
That all may hear the sound ; And shun the drunkard's wretched way, For paths where bliss is found.
2       The temp'rance trumpet blow, And bid the young come near ;
Youth is the time to serve the Lord, With zeal and humble fear.
3       The temp'rance trumpet blow, That all with hoary hairs,
The cup of death may now renounce, And 'scape its countless snares.
4       The temp'rance trumpet blow, That all may hear and flee
The drunkard's path of wo and shame, And endless miserv.
J. Burnz
40                           S. M.
1 I HEARD a voice from heav'n JL Address the thoughtless throng, Who hasten downward to the tomb With revelry and song.
2       It warn'd them not to quench The holy light within,
And madly dare the fearful doom Of unrepented sin.
3       It warn'd them of the shame That haunts the drunkard's grave,
And of that leprosy of soul
From which no skill can save.
4       I looked and thousands fled The tempter's fatal snare ;
But some were number'd with the dead, Who shall their doom declare ?
