ODES AND SONGS.
Save us. Yes though we were spell bound,
Fixed in very sight of wo, Yet the Pledge shall free the hell bound;
Will we wear those shackles ? No.
From the floods' overwhelming power,
We unto this ark have fled; Whence we gaze in safety's hour
On the dying and the dead. Now, of God, earths sons and daughters,
As on high he sets his bow, Ask if shall return those waters ?
And Jehovah answers. No !
W. B. Tappar.
26                         SONG.
PREPARE FOR THE BATTLE.
P REPARE for the battle, attend to the sound, The call that earth's vallies and mountains resound, Where the foe with his deeds of destruction are found,
Go ye forth to the help of the Lord. He will order the battle, who calls from afar, Sons and daughters unskilled in the tactics of war, But His banner above them, His soldiers they are, And safe in the power of His sword.
Then sound the loud trumpet ye watchmen in Zion, Till the drunkard whose chains far more cruel than iron Shall flee from the snares of the prey-seeking lion,
Who in alcohol has such sure hold. Oh entreat him to come to our happy retreat, Where Israel's shepherd does often times meet, And stay with His mercy the wanderer's feet,
Till fixed in His own sacred fold.
