From her appeal while slaves exist !
Methinks, I hear the felters fall,

Doom'd yet to live, and not to know And Freeilom offer bliss to all ;

The end why life was given, While, pointing to the Christian plan,

They breathe unconscious of their state, She shews the love of God to Man.

Nor hope, - nor think of Ileav'n! Car hope grows brighter from this happy day!

Where the majestic Ganges swiftly pours
Jler mighty streams along the eastery shores,
rly bovering fancy dwells, and bears me hence
To India's wealthy climes, and plains immense!
Where darkness reigns I fain would spend my breath,
And toil to weave a never-fading wreath
To crown my Saviour's brow! O blissful thought!
To win to Christ a soul with darkness frauglat !

Ye champions of the mighty God, arise,
And wave your Boating banners to the skies!
With shouts proclaim a dying Saviour's love,
And, conqnering and in congner, onward move.
Shall not the clang of vile idolatry
Awake your souls to set the prisoners free,
· Aad loose the dreadful chains ihat binds them fast
To superstitious rites and heltish cast?
Yeininisters of Christ, behold with grief
The dying Heathen panting for relief!
"Tis yours to break Oppression's crue! rod;
Tis yours to point them to the Lamb of God.
Why then so slothful! - why this long delay ?
The work is God's, Iminanuel leads the way! TEMPO.
