BVNYAN'S PILGRIM'S O0PRGU.W
"CHRISTIAN GOT UP TO THE GATE."
'Il mournful reflection the daytime was spent,
And night to the danger a deeper gloom lent; ,
For the red hand of vengeance roused conscience beheld,
Impend o'er its victims who madly rebelled.
The sinner in grief asked, is justice alone
The glory of God, the support of his throne
No; mercy in man thou delightest to see;
:then, great Jehovah, have mercy on me.
As Christian his anguish in words thus revealed,
Evangelist met him abroad in the field;
And showed him the mercy he earnestly sought,
By glorious Emanuel's blood had been bought.
Look out through the shadows, Evangelist said,
To where yon bright beacon its radiance doth shed;
It shines o'er the wicket, which opens the way
From death, guilt, and danger, to life's perfect day.
Now see how he hastens the wicket to find,
Salvation before him, Destruction behind; *
Nor thinks on the dangers that lie in the road,
So grievously presses his sin's direful load.
Through the Slough of Despond, through the fires of Sinai,
Nought quenches his ardor, the gate he draws nigh;
When Beelzebub's warder Sin's castle alarms,
"A victim escapes us, rouse, demons, to arms!"
Temptation's wing'd arrows fall round him like hail,
But steadfast his purpose; no foe could prevail;
The wicket is near; on the,portal is graved
"Knock, it shall be opened;" he knocks, and isseved.
Oh! hearty the welcome which Goodwill accords,
And blessed the peace which his council affords.
Ye sin-burdened mortals make haste to the gate,
Death waits on their footsteps who procrastinate
THE PALACE CALLED BEAUTIFUL.
THERE is honor above and a heaven of bliss,
Assured to thi brave and the true;
But the mean, selfish coward cares nothing for this,
What charms has a heaven for you 1
Through much tribulation, the servants of God
Their crowns, palms, and white robes have earned;
For they followed a captain who fearlessly trod
In obedience throulgh sufferings learned.
Mistrust, Fear, and Timorous run as for life,
Into death and destruction from Zion;
Woulo a brave man bear back from the chaAce of a strife ?
David slew both a bear and a lion.
mt thou, noble Christian, what makes thee so bold t
Is it rashness that urges thee on ?
rt thou heedless s beware! look before thee; behold
Two lions, and thou art alone.
From destruction assured thou thus far hast sped,
And pardon and peace hast received;
Thy blood is less precious than that which was shed,
To warrant what thou hast believed.
0, Faith, what a refuge in trouble thou art,
The promise God spoke, stand it must;
Though the mountains remove, though the hills should depart
Secure is the Christian's trust.
From the power of the lions my darling I'll save,"
And Watchful calls out They are chained.
They are placed where they are but to prove who are brave
For glory by valor is gained."
All praise be to Him who his servants ne'er tries,
But a way of escape he prepares;
To the trusting a mansion is sure in the shies,
On God let us cast all our cares.

BUT BY THIS PLACE CHRISTIAN WENT WITHOUT MUCH DANGER
WHAT hoary giant sits forlorn,
As if by all the world forsaken !
Why smiles each passer by in scorn,
Can helplessness no pity waken
His toothless jaws and palsied hands
But ill beseem these rich Regalia;
A baton and no warlike bands
Is meaningless paraphernalia.
The time has been these joints were strong
As bars of steel to quell the proudest;
Though palsy chains that quivering tongue,
It once was heard above the loudest.
No monarch in wide Europe dared
To treat thy slightest wish with scorning;
Now thou art fallen, to hate, but spared-
0, Lucifer, son of the morning.
Infernal monarchs from their thrones
Rise with grim smiles, and mock saluting,;
Each bloody tyrant votes with groans
The chief man-scourge; no voice dits.i"^
We put to death our thousands ten,
Say they, for pleasure or ambition
We reck'd not of the lives of men;
And now we reign in dark perdition."
But millions scarce thy victims sum,
Kill'd in mock zeal for truth and heaven;
And still thou prayest "Thy kingdom coier,
Forgive us, for we have forgiven."
These mouldering bones around thy cave,
Mournfully answer thy petition;
Thy mercy was a bloody grave,
And powerless hate is thy condition.

3, WHAT are the trials you stood in the past,
And noble resolves for the future forecast,
No moment from watchfulness yet can you spare,
You enter the precincts of Vanity Fair.
Your kindred and country for truth are forsaken,
You faced many dangers and troubles unshaken;
The lions themselves your brave souls could not scare,--
But shall you pass scatheless through Vanity Fair I
Here are sold everyfolly that pleases the eye,
The venders of fleshly delights say Come buy ;
All soul-killing delicate things rich and rare,
Tempt the traveller passing through Vanity Fair.
The eye and the palate may cease to content;
But lo! dame Ambition to market is sent,
With crowns, places, honors, and such-sort of ware,
In return for a soul spen at Vanity Fair.
Yea, Pride of opinion will fetch a good price;
Self-righteousness sells at a crown for a slice;
Be a bigot, and that makes you sure of a share
Ofa fat sinecureship at Vanity Fair.
Do you aim at the priesthood, feign well, and you whi;
Do you wish a state office, profess, and go in;
Only lie and be smooth; but of one thing beware,-
Do not follow Emanuel in Vanity Fair.
He set up a stall for the sale of the truth,
And the magistrates said he perverted the youth;
So they caused the Romans a cross to prepare,
And thereon nailed Emanuel in Vanity Fair.
So Faithful and Christian by dress and by speech,
In passing the same thing mu t manfully teach;
And Faithful through flames is conveyed through the at,
While Christian escapes safe from Vanity Fair
BUNYAN Pl GRIM's PROGRoss.
CHRISTIAN AND HOPEFUL ESCAPING FROM DOUBTING CASTLE
DAxk and despairing no comfort now sharing,
Cruel remembrance my soul wraps in gloom;
No bright ray beaming with hope cheerful gleaming,
Lights my sad vision beyond the dark tomb.
My soul is now chained, her powers all restrained,
W io shall deliver me, 0, wretched man.
Well do I know good, but how to do good,
Sincere though my purpose, I no longer can
Why did I careless stray from the appointed way,
Rough though the road was, peace there'was found;
Wisdom regarded all pleasures rewarded,
The pilgrim who pass'd o'er Emanuel's ground.
When trials were over, bright visions would hover
Around me with sweet words of comfort and hope;
And in Death's dark vale I found not my faith fail,
Thy rod and thy staff with all dangers could cope.
Now since solacing from toil and transgression,
Duty neglecting, consulted my ease;
Just condemnation and fierce indignation
Are all that in prospect my spirit now sees.
But shall forever the Lord my soul sever
From mercy, and is his compassion clean gone .
Must my soul plunge in Despair's dreary dungeon,
Since Christ paid my ransom and sits on his throne
"Why at life spurn ye, turn, sinner, turn ye,
I your iniquities all will subdue;
A propitiation for every nation
My blood is, and surely sufficient for you."
No longer grieving, but humbly receiving
The master key Promise, I now am set free
No more despairing but Zionward faring,
I praise as I travel God's -ercy to me.

'Then said the Shepherds one to another, let us here show the Pilgrims the Gates of the Celesttia
City, if they have skill to ook through our prospective glass."
TVU us, Shepherds, whose those mountains,
Fruitful vineyards, flowery meads,
And this flock which by still fountains,
In the verdant pasture feeds.
We are travel-worn, and hasting
To a country fir away ;
Can we spend brief season, tastipg
Calm repose, till break of day t
Rocky steep and rolling prairie,
Towering mountain, wood and plair
And these pastures, green and airy,
To Emanuel appertain.
These sheep are his so calmly feeding,
lHe for them his life laid down;
His love for them all love exceeding;
This we doubt you will own.
Rest and welcome, for our master
Gave us charge concerning you;
Even as a faithful pastor
Ever keeps his charge in view.
We have wonders great to show you
For your comfort, as you pass
To the destined city; know you
How to use Faith's prospect glass 1
PILGRI M S.
Glory be to God forever!
Surely Zion we behold
Just beyond that narrow river,-
Yes, we know its domes of gold.
There its sparkling twelve foundations,
And its pearly gates appear,
But our ravished heart's pulsations
Make the view no longer clear.
NA PILGRIM'S PROORKIU.
THE DELECTABLE MOU N TAINS.
SxAREs and dangers still abide you,
Ere you reach the promised rest;
To sad scenes we now ust guide you,-
Mark the fate of the unblqst!
See this portal adamantine,
Hear that groan and piercing yep;
Hypocrites, who by-paths flaunt in,
Find this byay pth to hell.
Not to us Lord of cosolation,
Not to us be any praise,
That we have obtained salvation,
Just and true re all thy ways!
O'er this precipice, called Error,
Philetus and .Hymoneus fell;
Atthe foot they lie, a terror
Mock philosophy t quell.
If there be no resurrection,
Then did Jesus die in vain;
Who can know God to perfection !
Who his working can explain !
Who are they that armless wander
To and fro among the graves '
Are they of thiftew who ponder
On thgrae from death that sa
No; these ease in sloth preferring
To the toilsome narrow way,
They, from understanding erring,
Witi the dead shall everstay.
. arewefi, Shepherdnow w ev yon,
Wiser for our visit he ': '
May the Sovereign Shepherd give you
Crowns of joy in heaver to wear.
