“That once familiar worcli"
It sweeps aero:a my stritilten soul
As tho Nue Wares unceasing roll

T'pon my heart when sorrow's clouds
Were far between and few:
1:1 , 1 Omagh my sky is all o'ereast,
ed griefs come crowding thick A fait,
;,uow the heart is true—
That made my pathway once so bright,
Though shrottd,d now in deepest night.
My heart has closer clung to thee
As fickle friends grew cold,
And dues thine own still turn to me
Fl'ett.as in days of old?
Oh ! dearer far the COIISCIOUSIICS3
That one firm friend my way will bless,
Then countless hoards of gold,—
Aye I dearer than the costliest gem
That decks a monarch's diadem.
The briannt light of other days
Will cheer toy way no more,
Yet still there beams same lingering ra;
From ineinoWs treasured store;
A softened ray—benign and rui:d,
Like that Welt guides a wandering
child
Back to Lis lather's door,
And gently binds him ti his home,
And quells each wayward wish to roam.
My weary soul still turns to Him
"Who never yet deceived,
When all in Earth at.d Heaves looks dim
Ind the wrung heart is grieved—
For, oh I in this dark realm, of tears, .
The treasured trust of weaty years
Fahould not he di dielieved,—
A lolly faith its human worth
Is all that holds the soul to earth.
