PRAISES AND THANKSGIVINGS.
Her blows, we'll pray " God speed" them,
The darkness to dispel;
And how we fought for freedom,
Let future ages tell.
Victorious on, &c.
L. M.
1    LET temp'rance and her sons rejoice, And be their praises loud and long, Let every heart and every voice Conspire to raise a joyful song.
2  And let the anthem rise to God, Whose fav'ring mercies so abound, And let his praises fly abroad, The spacious universe around.
3  His children's prayer he deigns to grant, He stays the progress of the foe;
And temp'rance, like a cherish'd plant, Beneath his fost'ring care shall grow.
C. M.
1   ON this glad day, O God, we would, Through thy beloved Son, Acknowledge Thee for all the good
That temperance has done.
2  We thank Thee for the thousands sav'd
From soul-seducing drink, Who by its power were long enslav'd, And cast on ruin's brink.
3  O let thy Holy Spirit dwell
Where vice too long has reign'd ; For where thy mercy breaks the spell The victory is gain'd.
