many a delightful hour, relating to their companions the events of their journey.
“I have extended my narrative much beyond my first intention. But I trust it has served to imprint on your minds, my dear boys, ås it has on mine, the interesting scenes of the Saviour's labours and sufferings. Jerusalem is a spot dear to every Christian heart, and any efforts to illustrate its scenery or history I could make, I have not felt to be lost. And now may that God, who once made Jerusalem his chosen seat, and that Saviour who there suffered and died for us, and that Spirit, who there descended to seal the work of man's redemption, bless us all, and appoint us each a place and an inheritance in the NEW JERUSALEM ABOVE.
Arouse thee and awake;
Thy regal vestments take.
The branch of Jesse's vine,
His very form divine.
from which the heavens flee, Is gently fixed on thine, And from afar he calls to thee, “ Arise and shine.",
The thorny wreath of shame;
•And vengeance is his name.
Of strong, but bitter wine ;
His enemies and thine.
And lo! he makes a sign;
Arise and shine."
III. “ Alas! wherewith shall I arise ?
For I am weak and poor ?" Responsive thunder shakes the skies,
“Is not my promise sure ? Did I not once to vengeance bow,
And die to make thee mine? And canst thou, dar'st thou ask me how
Thou shalt arise and shine? Hast thou not strength to pay thy vow ?
The Saviour's strength is thine, In my own strength I bid thee now
Arise and shine.”
