COUPLETS. Every sinful thought, Shall be to judgment brought. Every wicked word, Aloud in heaven is heard. Every lie we tell,
Exposes us to Hell. Every act we do,
We must account for too. Every hour we spend, Comes nearer to our end. Every moment gain'd, Is so much good obtain'd. Every passing breath, Brings us the nearer death. Every holy prayer, For Heay'n doth more prepare.
Let two Monitors repeat this Lesson, and the children respond. Then enter into conversation on some part, and elicit the children's ideas on each subject; and where you
find them deficient in comprehension, assist them by some striking anecdote or Scriptural story, bearing on the point. Ask also for texts in confirmation, and aid them in this part ; and may the Holy Spirit assist your endeavours, to impress it on their hearts, that it may take root, and bring forth fruit unto a holy life.
ON THE CREATION.
He made the birds, that soar on high,
And wickedness increase;
And time with them should cease.
And did an Ark prepare ;
He was a man of prayer.
And made of Gopher wood;
For man, and beast, and food. Just thirty cubits was its height,
Its breadth was fifty more;
And in the side, a door.
The creatures enter'd in ;
And every creeping thing.
God came, and shut them ip;
And that because of sin.
Then if we all with righteous Noah,
Seek God, and serve him too,
Who died for me and you.
ON THE SOUL.
We read, that God made man at first, As likewise all the beasts of dust; But God, in man, to crown the whole, Breath’d-and he then possess'd a Sonl; Which never can destroyed be'Twas so decreed by Deity. This Soul must be our life alone For when that life so call'd is gone, 'Tis but the soul remoy'd away From the weak body made of clay. Than animals we are no more, If not thus made superior ; . For they five senses have like we,They hear and taste, smell, feel, and see ; And instinct is, in some so great As to astonishment create. The soul of man is more; we find It includes mem'ry, reason, mind :The body, then, appears to me But the soul's agent; for we see 'Tis mov'd to act by that within, To practise good-or practise sin. But tell me, when you wrong have done, And wish the action to disown, When you your lips in silence seal, Does not a blush your guilt reveal, And very oft against your will ? I hope you'll then attentive be, When it reproves so faithfully ; For wicked is that child indeed, Whom it refuses thus to aid ; And little children know full well, That Souls, all go to Heaven or Hell.
