brig' teat lights that adorned tbeir borne. Full of the
tendereat senMt.ilitlea, eanctified from the cradle, her
constant aspiration. "Lord. ? hit wilt Thou have me
to do 7" The sudden death of a brother, ?ho waa wor
thy of a slater's tendereet love, and for whose safety
she had watobod aod prayed durinir the anxious years
Id which the land was convulsed with war, caused this
fair young flower to droop, to languish aod to die.
?clmly entering on the subject ?hen apparently there
was no certain danger, she b*d expressed her perfect
resignation to the will of QoA, ami deflated ?l.at shs
bad no fear ol death. Her mtrclful Saviour waa with
boras she passed through ' the dirk valley," and lit up
her sweet face with the glories He then revealed to her.
Alono, un to oar Father's will,
Une tbought hath reconciled?
That Be. whose tove exeeedeth ours,
Haa taken home His child.
Fold her, O Father, In thine arms,
And let her henceforth bo
A rxessencter of love betirren
Our human hearts and Thee.
And grant that ahe, who, trembling here,
Distrusted all her powers.
May welcome to her holler home
The well beloved ol oars.
