How easy the soul that hath left

This wearisome body behind.
Of evil incapable thou,

Whose relicts with envy I see,
No longer in misery now,
No longer a sinner like me.

III.
This earth is affected no more

With sickness, and shaken with pain, The war in the members is o'er,

And never shall vex him again: No anger henceforward, or shame,

Shall redden this innocent clay ; Extinct is the animal flare,

And passion is vanish'd away.

IV.

The languishing head is at rest,

Its thinking and aching are o'er ; The quiet immoveable breast

Is heav'd by affliction no more: The heart is no longer the seat

Of trouble and torturing pain, It ceases to flutter and beat,

It never shall flutter again.

V.

The lids he so seldom could close,

By sorrow forbidden to sleep,

Seal'd up in eternal repose,

Have strangely forgotten to weep: The fountain can yield no supplies,

These hollows from water are free, The tears are all wip'd from these eyes,

And evil they never shall see.

CLXXX. On the death of an eminent Saint.

P. M.

I.

On

Lo, the thirsty, longing soul Drinks, where from a thousand fountains,

Endless joys in rivers roll.

II.

Burst the Captive from his prison,

Glad to leave the realms of night; Glorious now the Exile's risen

To his home, his God, in light.

III.

Christ, the strength of heav'nly warriors !"

Shouts the victor fpirit now; “ Arın'd by thee I've storm'd the barriers !

Conquer'd is the haughty foe!

IV.

« Now receive me to the city,

“ Let me join the happy band; “ Me the object of thy pity!

“ Crown ine, crown me with thy hand!"

Hosts celestial, fee it granted!

Praise, in pealing anthems praise ! Christ the Lord gave all he wanted !

Raise, to Jesus, anthems raise!

VI.

On the everlasting mountains,

Lo! the fav’d, th' enraptur'd soul Sings, where from a thousand fountains,

Endless joys in rivers roll.

Ground, O ground me on the Lamb
Guide me, thou great Jehovah

Hail, thou once despised Jesus !
Hail the day that sees him

Hark! in the wilderness a cry!
