Praying and Preying.
Mit EDITOR: Some timo since, hearing a
friend recito ono.of those beautiful little
lyrics, which fix themselves iudellibly in tho
momory and hoarts ot children, I requested
him to givo mo a copy for tho uso ot my own
little "olivo branches." A few days siuce ho
handed mo Usc. enclosed, rem irking that tho
times called for a "new version," adapted to
tho peculiar preying propensities of a largo
adult class of tho present duy, and that lie
had endeavored to meet this want in thu
parody enclosed. Please print them, as thoy
aro calculated to do good, and woll desorvo to
bo preserved, as contrasting tho spiritual
toaohiugsof tho past with tho sordid proving
OT tho present. *****
When daily I kneel down to pray.
As I am taught to do,
Qod does not caro what I may say,
Utiles i I fuel it, too.
Yet foolish thoughts my heart beguile,
Whene'er I pray or Biug,
And I am thinking all tho whilo
About sumo other thing.
Homo idle play, some foolish toy,
Gan sen I my thoughts abroad,
While it should bo my highest joy
To love and servo tho Lord.
Thon let mo novcr, never daro,
Tn sot thu trifler's part,
Nor think that God will hoed a prayer,
That comes not from my. heart.
Whon daily wo sot out to prey
On what wo find in view,
What do wo caro what others say,
If spells como with it, too.
Though some may think us tree from guilo,
Wheu wo abuso the ring,
Still wo are thinking all tho whilo
About sumo sharper thing
Some coupon bonds-some railroad stock
Of city Jobs a few;
Should these in court get in a lock,
We'll start np something new.
When etutionory goes the rounds,
Let each mau take a ream,
Assured no credit will bo found
For those who bouest seem.
Then lot us over, ever spring
Boldly upon our prey,
And kuow, thieves coverod by tho ring,
Are,not caught in a day.
