itself from the astonished sight.” A new heaven and a new earth, also, start into view, composed of costly and imperishable

imperishable materials, and adorned with all that can give beauty and magnificence to the scene. As it will be the last, so it will be the noblest, of God's works ; the very perfection of divine contrivance and power; and the fit residence of the Saviour, and his redeemed family. The reign of truth without error, of holiness without imperfection, and of happiness without alloy, commences; and from the azure canopy of heaven the universal song resounds, WORTHY IS THE LAMB THAT WAS SLAIN TO RECEIVE POWER, AND RICHES, AND WISDOM, AND STRENGTH, AND HONOUR, AND GLORY, AND BLESSING.

“O thou great Arbiter of life and death!
Nature's immortal, immaterial sun!
Whose all-prolific beam late call’d me forth
From darkness, teeming darkness, where I lay
The worm's inferior; and, in rank, beneath
The dust I tread on; high to bear my brow,
To drink the spirit of the golden day,
And triumph in existence: and could'st know
No motive but my bliss: and hast ordain'd
A rise in blessing ! with the Patriarch’s joy
Thy call I follow to the land unknown:
I trust in thee, and know in whom I trust :
Or life or death is equal; neither weighs;
All weight in this-0 LET ME LIVE TO THEE !"
