PRAISES AND THANKSGIVINGS.

1   HOSANNAS, Lord, to Thee we sing,
Whose power the giant fiend obeys ; What countlesss thousands tribute bring, For happier homes and brighter days !
2  Thou wilt not break the bruised reed,
Nor leave the broken heart unbound; The wife regains a husband freed ! The orphan clasps a father found!
3  Spare, Lord, the thoughtless, guide the blind,
Till man no more shall deem it just To live, by forging chains to bind His weaker brother in the dust.
4  Still give us grace, Almighty King !
Unwavering at our posts to stand, 'Till grateful at thy shrine we bring The tribute of a ransomed land.
66                       7s. & 6s.
1   HOW long shall virtue languish? How long shall folly reign ? While many a heart with anguish
Is weeping o'er the slain ? How long shall dissipation
Her deadly waters pour, Throughout this favored nation,
Her millions to devour ?
2  When shall the veil of blindness
Fall from the sons of wealth, Restoring human kindness
And industry, and health ? When shall the charms so luring,
Of bad example cease;                           
The ends at once securing,
Of industry and peace ?
