54                          PRAISES AND THANKSGIVINGS.
69                          L. M.
1   WE praise thee, Lord—if but one soul
While the past year prolong'd its flight, Turn'd shudd'ring from the pois'nous bowl, To health, and liberty, and light.
2  We praise thee—if one clouded home, Where broken hearts despairing pin'd, Beheld the sire and husband come, Erect, and in his perfect mind.
3  No more a weeping wife to mock, 'Till all her hopes in anguish end— No more the trembling mind to shock, And sink the father in the fiend.
4  Still give us grace, Almighty King, Unwav'ring at our posts to stand; 'Till grateful at thy shrine we bring, The tribute of a ransom'd land.
L. H. Sigourney.
70                       8s. & 7s.
1   PARENT of the great creation,
thou hast open'd wide thine hand; Thanks we give and adoration, Now that we before thee stand.
2  May all drunkards now enslaved, Taste those pleasures we enjoy ; They and us through grace be saved, And for thee our lives employ.
3  Safely by thy spirit guided, 'Till the scenes of life are o'er, May we taste the bliss provided, Hunger then and thirst no more.
