Ah! stubborn heart of mine, that hears,
Vet, like Jerusalem, will not heed ;
That will not melt, that hath no tears,
No lore for bim who came to bleed,
To die, In fearful agonies,
Thy sins tQ cure, tby hurts to heal ;
Ah 1 Christ, give ear unto my cries,
Teach me to lore to fear to* feel!,
Gather me ’neatb tby folding wings l—
Thou know’st my guilt; the fearful guilt
That lies upon my soul, and clings,
In spite of all the blood thou'st spilt I
Send down thy messenger of grace,
And touch this stony heart of mine,
That I may look and see thy face,
And send my lore in hope of thine.
Tby help, 0! Sarior, in the strife;
The will is weak, the flesh is strong,
Prevailing hourly 'gainst the life,
And teaching stiii the love for wrong;
The world, with all its fearful powers
Of pride and passion, sways the heart;
And inunt prevail, in heedless hours’
Unless /houtak’st the sinner’s part.
Too weak, himself, lo brave the foe;
To conquer in the strife which makes,
His very virtues give the blow,—
His weakness still when Passion shakes
Oh ! help, with arm outstretched to save
Oh ! give the needful strength for strife!
That be may boldly stvnd and brave
Tne foe, and save the Eternal Life!

PURIFICATION OF THE BLOOD

tructive maladies, hence life wears fast. The
fair sex, perhaps the handsomest in the
world, up to a certain period when, distros-s
in* to say, many lose their teeth and good

aad evils may be effectually remedied by con
tinually keeping the blood pare, and the Liv-
er and stomach in a healthy action,when life
will flow smoothly, and resemble plants in a
congenial clime, where an eternal spring ap
pears to reign. As it regards the preserva

life, much may be effected, and I say fear
lessly, that health and life can be prolonged
