ODES AND SONGS.
And blessings on the helping hands
That send him back to me, Haste, haste, ye little ones, and run,
Your father's face to see. And are you sure, my John, you've sign'd ?
And are you sure 'tis past ? Then mine's the happiest, brightest home On ternp'rance shores at last!
There's been nae luck about the house,
But now 'tis comfort a'! And heaven preserve my ain gudeman, That he may never fa'!"

SONG.
THE STREAMLET'S MUSIC.
C RYSTAL Streamlet! gently flowing, O'er the pebble-cover'd bed ; Where the water lily growing, Rears it bloom adorned head.
Lightly dance thy waters on, Glistening in the sunny beam ;
Murmuring a pleasing song ; Sweet thy music, gentle stream.
It tells of joy, and peace serene, Happy homes and smiling faces;
And all the fair domestic scene,
Haunt of gentlest loves and graces.
It tells of reason, lucid, free,
Passion, noble, pure, refin'd, In bonds of social harmony
Interweaving all mankind.
And then it plays a higher part,
And tells of Him who bid theo flow ;
Who form'd the flowers, with curious art, That on thy grassy margin grow.
