TEMPERANCE REFORM.
5  It filleth health and beauty's cup,
And wrath and sorrow doth it drown, As from our wells it cometh up, As from thy clouds it cometh down.
6  For the cool water we have quaffed,
Source of all good ! we owe thee much ; Our lips have touched no burning draught This day, nor shall they ever touch.
7  When we retire to our repose,
And night's dark curtains round us draw, O guard us, as thou guardest those Who trust thy care, and keep thy law !
Pierpont.

1    RISE and shine through every nation, O thou temp'rance star divine ! Bless, O bless the whole creation;
Enter every heart and mind.
Rouse the drunkards ! Teach them to be wise in time.
2  Guided by the great Jehovah,
Strengthen'd by his mighty hand, Even drunkards are made sober ; See them travel through the land.
They shall prosper— Joined in one te-total band.
3  Who will come and join our standard ?
Help to pull the strong-holds down ? Temperance men, unite—come forward, Then the victory is your own ;
Endless glory Will your useful labors crown.
