Frontispiece.

Fly--fly--these thoughts on the lightning car, With the speed of light to the realms afar! Mount--mount the car with the horse of fire; Outstrip the wind, he will never tire, Let the wild bird scream as he lags behind, And the hurricane a champion find. Search the darkest spot where mortals dwell: With a voice of thunder the tidings tell, Proclaim the dawn of a brighter day, When the _King of kings_ shall his sceptre sway. Bid pain, and anguish, and sorrow cease, And open the way for the _Prince of Peace_. He will conquer death, bid mourning flee, And give to the nations a _Jubilee_.

O Truth divine! what treasures unrevealed, In thine exhaustless fountains are concealed! Words multiplied; how powerless to tell, The infinitude with which our bosoms swell.
