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.

I.

Jerusalem, Jerusalem,

Arouse thee and awake;
Take back thy long lost diadem,

Thy regal vestments take.
For on the mountain's top I see

The branch of Jesse's vine,
His very glance is majesty,

His very form divine.

That eye,

from which the heavens flee, Is gently fixed on thine, And from afar he calls to thee, “ Arise and shine.",

II.
No more he wears upon his brow

The thorny wreath of shame;
His judgment robes are on him now,

•And vengeance is his name.
A cup is in his right hand borne,

Of strong, but bitter wine ;
His foes shall drink it-he hath sworn-

His enemies and thine.
But he espies thy vesture torn,
Thy widow's weeds for ages worn,

And lo! he makes a sign;
“ Zion, my spouse, no longer mourn;

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.”
