ON THE VICTORY AND DEATH
or LORD VISCOUNT NELSON.
Once more triumphant on the tides, Britain's unconquerid Navy rides,
And fills her foes with shame! Thrice NELSON fought in England's
cause; And Europe heard, with wide applause,
The terror of his name? Shrinking from his victorious sword, France fled dismay'd ; -- twice Britain
heard His fame with growing pride : The third time floating o'er the wave, Arriv'd the tidings, that to save
His country, - Nelson dy'd! Their force destroy'd, their colours
torn, Our foes with heartfelt anguish mourn
On ev'ry hostile shore : But Britain bows her conquering head, And o'er her laurels tears are shed,
That Nelson is - no inore! And Time shall spare his honour'd
name : His deeds, his worth, his deathless
Fach future age shall seize ; And men and babes delight to tell How Britain reign'd, tho' NELson sell,
The Mistress of the Seas! While bending o'er the warrior's grave, A thousand sable honours wave,
SAVIOUR, I turn to thee! The Patriot for his country dy'd ; But life rush'd through thy bleeding
For enemies,- for me!
When low his glory lies;
To raise you to the skies ! Peckham.

With rocks on either hand, Before them, lo! the sea retreats,
And leaves the oped sand ! Where never foot before had trod
They safely pass aloog i They saw the wondrous pow'r of God,
And then his praises song! Yet when one bitter draught they taste
At Marah, they repine, Forgetting, in their sinful haste,
Their Leader was divine. The brackish waters soon made sweet,
Their raging thirst relieve ;
Still backwar:/ to believe !
Can man with bread supply:
Descending from the sky ! The flinty rock, at his command,
A copious stream shall yield;
And Israel wias the field.
Jehovah's pow's to show,
And lay their boasting lov!
IT IS I, BE NOT AFRAID. Written during a violent storm of Thur
der and Lightning When storms arise and tempests hovl,
And clouds obscure the sky;
Be not afraid, 'tis I!
Extort th' serious cry, “What shall I do: my sins are great!"
Be not afraid 'tis 1.
Temptations make thee sigh; Believe in me: - I'll keep thy beart,
And sear not, it is I ! Should health, and wealth, and fricads
forsake, Yea, dissolution nigh, And Death's cold hand make Naturo
shake, Be not afraid, 'tis I. "Tis I who liv'd, 'tis I who dy'd,
That thou nay'st reign on high Bebold my hands, ny feet, my side,
And be convinc'd 'tis I. J. V.
