The sixth day, insects, reptiles too,
With beasts, both wild and tame,
Alas! not now the same.
Pronounced them all the best,
Remain a hallow'd rest.
The first day at Jehovah's word,

Long-suffering.-The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, long-suffering, and abundant in goodness and truth. (Exodus xxxiv. 6.)

The general method of using this Lesson is, by calling out two children, one to give out the attribute, the other the text in proof; or three children may be employed, one the attribute, another the text, and the third, where the text may be found. A wide range for conversation is here opened for the intelligent Teacher.
Sing the following. [Tune.- Berwick.
Who made the sun to give us light,
The moon and stars to rule the night.
What is this God who dwells on high,
S Whence came this great and mighty Lord,
Who form’d creation by bis word?
S And can this God, who dwells so high,
1 Our secret thonghts and actions spy?
Where dwells this universal King,
• Whose eyes behold each secret thing?
If to the heavens I ascend,
THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Eph. ii. 1.
1 Pet. ii. 9.
Ezek. xxxvi. 26. The Spirit softens it to feel.
The heart is shut, and barr'd by sin,
Col. i. 11.
