THE GREEN ILLS OF MY FATER
The green hills of my father-land
In dreams still meet my view,
1 see once more the wave-girt strand
The ocean depth of blue
The sky-the glorious sky outspread
Above their cahr repose
The river, o'er its rocky bed
Still singing as it flows
The stillness of the Sabbath hours,
Wtere men go uip to pray
The sun-lihti resting on the 1-wers
The birds that sing among the bowers,
Through all the summer day.
Land of my birth!-mine eaily love!
Once more thine airs I breathe!
I see thy proud hills tower above
The greet vales sleep beneath
Thy groves, thy rocks, thy murmuring rills,
All rise before mine eyes.
The dawn of morning on thy hills,
Thy gorgeons sun-set skies,
Thy forests, firom whose deep recess
A thousand streams have birth,
Glad'ninig the lonely wilderness,
And fillinag the green silentness
With melody and mirth.
I wonder if my home would seem
As lovely as of )ore!
I wonder if the mountain s:ream
oes siu-ing by the door!
And the flowers still bloom as fair,
And if the woodbines eliub,
As when I used to train them there,
In the dear olden time!
I wonder if the birds still sing
Upon the garden tree,
As sweetly as in that sweet spring
Whose gentle meitory does bring
So many dreams to me!
Iknow that there bath been a change,
A change o'er hall and hearth!
Faces and lootsteps new and strange,
About my place ot birth!
The neavenms above are still as bright
As in the days gone by;
But vanished is the beacon light
Ttat cheered my morning sky!
The hil, the vaie, and woody glen,
And rock, and murmuting stream,
That wore such glorious beauty tuen,
Would seem, should I return again,
The record of a dream!
I mourn iot for my childhood's hours,
Sice, in tue tar off West,
'Neat suainer saie,, a greener bowers,
M y heart hath found its rest;
K mourn tot for the aidls and streams
That chaimed my steps so long,
Yet stial I see them in my dreams,
And had then to ny song.
And often by the hearth-fire's blaze,
When winter eye~s sail co:ne,
We'll sit andl talk ot other days,
Atnd sing thle welb-rememibered lays
Of my green mnountamia home. Viot..
'JESUs OF NAZARETH PASSETH DY."
By Mrs. Sipurney.
Waccher!-who wak'st by the bed of~ pain,
Wa hute the stans sweep ont with chean tudnighat
Stifling ttay tear for thy loved one's sake,
Holding thy brena lest tus sleepa should break;
In thy loaneiiest hura ttaere's a helper nigh,
"Jesusot1 Nazaretha passeth by."
Strainger!-afar from ay native lanad,
Whiom no man takes widh a brother's hand,
Table and! hearta-stonie acre glowing free,
Casements are sparkatg, but nut fo~r thee;
There is one who can telc ol a home on high,
"Jesus ol Nazaretha passets by."
Sad one! in secr et. bending low,
A dart in the breast that thec world mnay not
Wrestlinag the tavosr oh tiod to wint,
His seal of pardon for days oh sas;
Press on, press oma, wtm ta prayerflul cry,
"Jesus o1 ~Anzareth passeth by."~
?Aourner!-whio satt'st in te chaurcha-yard lone
Scanning the lines ona that wuarble stoneC.
Plucking the weed f'rom tuy children's bed,
Platiing the myrtle and rose instead;
Look up from the tomb with teartul eye,
'-Jesus of Nazareth pcasseth by."~
Fading one!-wvith hectic streak,
In unay veins of fare and uwy wasted cheek,
Fear'st thou the shade of the darken'd vale?
Look to the guide who can never fail;
He hath trod it himself, he will hear thy sigh,
"Jesus of Nazareth passeth by."
Our waking dreams, that mock the day,
Have other ends thaan ths.
That come beneath the moonlit ray,
And charm the eyes they close.
The vision, colouring the night,
'Mid bloom and brightness wakes,
Banished by nmorninag's cheerful light
WVhich brightens what it breaks.
But dreams, which fill the waking eye
WVith deeper spells than sleep,
When hours unnumbered pass us by
From such we wake and weep.
We wake, butt btit not to sleep again,
'rThe heart has lost its youth;
The mnorninag light that wakes uts then,
Cold, calm, anid stern-is truth.
Tho man who, impr-ovinig in skill antd
knowledge, itmproves in moidesty, has an
fidablo a im to eatnes of mnind.
