56 PRAISES AND THANKSGIVINGS.
72 8s. 7s. & 4s.
1 LORD of heaven and earth assist us, While the temp'rance cause we plead, Though both earth and hell resist us,
If thou bless, we shall succeed,
From intemp'rance May our country soon be freed.
2 Let the temp'rance reformation,
Still go forward and increase, Checking vice and dissipation,
Filling hearts and homes with peace, ,
Till intemp'rance Shall on earth, for ever cease.
73 8s. 7s. & 4s.
1 SONS and daughters of the pilgrims, Who of noble birth are proud ;
Lo! the glorious cause of temp'rance, For exertion calls aloud,
While the monster Still within the land is found.
2 See the loathsome drunkard reeling;
Hark the cries of weeping friends ! Hear the mother, children pleading Heaven relief would quickly send ;
Cruel tyrant! When will all thy miseries end !
3 O ! thou great and mighty Saviour,
Haste thee on the glorious day, When the powerful, arch-deceiver, Shall no more his wrath display;
Then our cause will Gain the universal sway.
