Well may we praise him : all his ways are perfect:
Struck blind by lustre.
Shout louder praises.
Torturing ether. Up the bleak heavens let the spreading flames rise, Breaking, like Ætna, through the smoky columns, Lowering, like Egypt, o'er the falling city,
Wantonly burn'd down.* Let oceans waft on all your fleeting castles, Fraught with destruction, horrible to nature ; Then, with your sails fill’d by a storm of vengeance,
Bear down to battle.
* Charlestown, near Boston.
From the dire caverns, made by ghostly miners,
Quick to destruction.
War, I defy thee.
To the encounter.
Life is redoubled.
THE AMERICAN BOY.
BY J. H. HEWITT.
“Father, look up, and see that flag!
How gracefully it flies !
A rainbow in the skies."
And proudly drinks the light,
A symbol of our might.”
Like thundering in the clouds ?
Why do the people wave their hats,
And rush along in crowds ?” . It is the voice of cannonry,
The glad shouts of the free: This is a day to memory dear
'Tis Freedom's jubilee.”
I'd fire my cannon too,
My heart is big with joy ;
Shout you aloud, my boy.”
God bless our native land,
Of freedom in my hand !" - Well done! my boy: grow up and love
The land that gave you birth;
Is paradise on earth."
