O THE DEATH OF AN INFANT. [T,'lJ us if Christianity does got throw a pleasing ra- diance around aa infant's tomb 1. And should any parent who hears us feel soJtened hy the remembrance of the light that twinkled a few s-!iort months under his roof, and at the end of its-little period expired, we can- not think that we venture too far, when we say that hI' has only to persevere in the faith, and in the following of th"; Gospel, and that very fight will again shine upon him in heaven. Thc blossom which withered here upon its stalk ha been transplanted there to a place of en- durance and it will then gladden that eye which no weep? out the a,roay of an affection that has been sorely wounded awj, in the name of him, who, if on earth, would have wept along with them, do we bid all be- lievers present, to sorrow not even as others which have o hope, but to take comfort in the hope of that country whe e there is no sorrow and no separation.- Clialitiers.] Beloved of Heaven! the strife unknown, To gain a heritage with'" saints in iight," To win a bright immortal ccown- Nor run the race"—uafought the fight." Without a taint af earthly cares, To sin unknown, from sorrro;v, free, Thy pure redeemed spirit shares Au early immortali Yet-lost to u-5ad thoughts will rise, Religion's self would scarce reprove, As memory tells the thousand ties That bound thee to a mother's love. •' -No! taken with thy God to dwell, All selfishasorrow we resign Dear suffering, patient babe, farewell, We feel secure-that Heaven is thine. 1 Ji1#
