A holier man than Deacon Johu
You scarce could hope to find;
or one who mourned more loud and long,
The sins of human kind.
His lengthened visage bore a stamp
That could not he mistook.
Beside the upward glance- -that gave
Him such a saintly look!
Sundays he kept in solemn stale;
If he could have his way,
No i tiril should sing, or flowers bloom
Cpon the Sabbath day!
His children learned the day to dread,
As wearily forlorn;
They conned their catechisms o'er
And wished 'twas Monday morn!
He Judged all men children of wrath
Who wore a smiling face;
And quoted scripture by the hour,
However out of place.
All love of art or ornament
He reckoned as a sin;
And song and dance were Satan's games,
In which he'd surely win!
Yet keen ami shrewd was Deacon John
In temporal a Hairs;
No man was sharper In a trade,
Or close at splitting hairs.
Aud though to swell subscription lists,
His name he promptly put—
The wood he sold to Widow Jones
Was scanty full a foot!
With might and main the Deacon warred
'Gainst sins of flesh and sense;
But drove to "pound" his neighbor's klue,
And moved the boundary fence.
He raised his empty hands in prayer
For blessings on the poor!
But sent, with harsh und cruel words,
The beggur from his door!
Alas! good Deacon John had made
An error in his plan!
Forgetting he serves God the best
Who serves his fellow-man.
That only they live strictly lives,
i Whatever they profess;
Who bear His sweetness ln their hearts,
Aud breathe His tenderness.
