46                               TEMPERANCE REFORM.
58                     8s. 7s. & 4s.
1   COME,ye messengers of mercy, Ye who gospel trumpets sound, Aid us in this controversy,
Satan's kingdom to confound ;
Come and join us; So shall righteousness abound.
2  Come, ye men of lower classes,
Ye who labor hard and long ; Ye who think your single glasses Make you happy, hale and strong
Come and join us ; Come, and prove us right or wrong.
3  For your country's reformation,
For your children's future weal, For your own sure preservation— To your conscience we appeal.
Come and join us ; Touch not, taste not, drink no more.
59                         4s. & 6s.
1   O THAT the Lord would hear Our supplicating cry ; In our behalf appear,
A Saviour ever nigh ; And sweetly prompt each female's heart, To take with us an active part.
2  Ye Sarah's now arise, Ye Miriams all come forth;
While Hannahs, truly wise,
Now prove your genuine worth. No power like yours—save that above, To teach sobriety and love.
