40                               TEMPERANCE REFORM.
3 Hasten, Lord, the glorious day;
Reign supreme, thou Prince of Peace, Bow the nations to thy sway,
Fill the earth with righteousness. Come, Immanuel, come and reign ; Ev'ry creature say, Amen.
T. B., Sen.

1   THE Pledge! The Pledge ! The mighty rock,
Whereon the temp'rance fabric's set, Which has defied the rudest shock That prejudice and hate, as yet, With'earth and hell combined, could bring Against the cause we're furthering !
2  The Pledge ! The Pledge ! The glorious ark !
Which sheltered anxious multitudes, When dissipation, fierce and dark,
Pour'd on the world its angry floods, Destroying all things bright and fair, And whelming man in black despair.
3  The Pledge ! The Pledge ! The only hope
Of the reform'd inebriate ! Without it can he ever cope
With habit's strength and appetite? Ho ! Bacchus' blinded devotee, Come to the pledge—once more be free !
4 The Pledge ! The Pledge ! The glorious Pledge: Oh ! let it ne'er forsaken be; Proclaim it loudly to the world,
And chant its praises gladsomely ! Firm to the pledge let's stand, till we, Through heaven's aid, the victors be !
