T1IE OLD AIIM-CIIAIR.
I love it, 1 love it; and who shall dare
To chide me for loving the old arm-chair?
I have treasured it long as a holy prize,
I've bedew 'd it with tears, and embalmed i
'Tis bound by a thousand bands to my heart;
Not a tie will break, not a link will start.
Would ye learn the spell a mother sat there,
And a sacred thing is that old arm-chair.
In childhood s hour I lingered near
The hallow 1 seat with list 'niug tar;
And gentle words that mother would give,
To lit nic to die and teach me to live.
She told mo shame would neve r betide,
. With truth for my creed and God for my
She taught me to lisp my earliest prayer,
As I knelt beside that old arm-chair.
I sat and watch M her many a day,
When her eye grew dim, and her locks were
And I almost worshipp'd her when she
And turned from her Bible to bless her child.
Yoars roll'd on, but the last was sped
My idol was shatter'd, my earth-star fled;
I learnt how much the heart can bear,
When 1 saw her die in that old arm-chair.
'Tis past! 'tis past! but I gaze on it now,
With quivering breath and throbbing brow.
Twas there she nursed me, 'twas there she
a And rirwi tnrvr IIam-c iimIm I i i ttl a
Say it is tolly, and deom me weak,
While the scalding tears start down my check,
But 1 love it, 1 love it, and cannot tear
3Iy soul from a mother's old arm-chair.
From the Connecticut Mirror.
The annexed feeling and beautiful lines arc
said to have been written by a young Kng
lish lady, who had experienced much at
lliction. There is a devotedness , spirit
of religion running through them which
cannot fail to touch the most obdurate
Icsus I my cross have taken,
All to leave, and follow thee;
Naked, poor, despised, forsaken
Thou from hence, my all shalt be!
Perish every-fond ambition
All I've sought, or hoped, or known;
Yet how rich is my condition
; God and heaven are all my own!
Let the world despise and leave me
They have left my Saviour too;
Human hopes and looks deceive me,
Thou art not, like them, untrue;
And whilst thou shall smiie upon me,
God of wisdom, love, and might,
Friends mav hate, and lues may scorn me,
Show thy lace ami all is right.
Go, then, earthly fame and treasure
Come, disaster, scorn, and pain!
lathy service, pain is pleasure,
With thy favor, loss is gain.
I have called thee Abba leather
I have set my heart on thee;
, Storms may howl, and clouds may gather,
All must work tor good to me !
Man may trouble and distress me
'Twill but drive me to thv breast;
Life with trials hard may press me
Twill but bring nic sweeter rest;
Oh! 'tis not in Grief to harm me,
While thy love is b.:t to me;
Oh, 'tis not in .Joy to charm me,
Were that Joy" unmixed with thee!
Soul! then know thy full salvation
Rise o'er sin, and fear, and care,
Joy to find in every station
Something still to do or bear!
Think what spirit dwells within thee
. Think what heavenly smiles are thine;
Think that Jesus dii d to save thee
Child of Heaven can l thou icrine! 1
T H K V 0 L Y N K S I A N
Huste thee on, from grace to glory,
Armed by faith, and winged by prayer;
Heaven's eternal day's before thee
God's own hand shall guide thee there,
Soon shall close thy earthly mission,
Soon shall pass thy pilgrim days;
Hone shall change to glad fruition
laith to sight, and prayer to praise!
