ON THE ABOLITION OF THE SLAVE TRADE.
AFRIC, at length, has heard the joyful sound, . “ Thy sons are free! Fallen is the knotted scourge, 66 And burst the iron bonds! The oppressor's arm “ Hangs powerless, and brandishes the thong, “ The blood-stain'd thong, and torturing lash - no more !"
• Is there a heart, all warm with British blood,
Oh!' that in nearer bondage we were join'd
The time shall come, nor distant be the date,
But shall I joy for thee, nor for myself,
O Love, beyond the stretch of human thought ?
Burst forth, my tears, and ease my labouring heart,
Mysterious are thy ways, Eternal; nor as ours
Oh! why to me was this salvation sent?
Infinite goodness ! - love beyond degree !
In humble adoration, Lord, Lown
With love to thee, my Jesus and my God,
Extatic thought! and shall for me this love
To his labour cheerful goes : Silent chic ng gloom away ;
Day's returning blessings prizes, Lovely tints the sky a dorning,
And in praise his pleasure shows Harbingers of opening day!
May each morn, that in succession See the King of Day appearing,
Ådds new mercies ever Aowing, Slow his progress and serene ;
Leave a strong and deep impression Soon I feel the influence cheering of this grand and lovely scene !
Of my debt for ever growing!
Deht of love, ah! how increasing! Lovely songsters join their voices, Days and years fresh blessings bring i
Harmony the grove pervades ; But my praise shall flow unceasing, All in nature now rejoices,
And my Maker's love I'll sing ! Light and joy succeed the shades. Westminster.
