To loved New England's quiet homes,
And Sabbath groups of youth most dear,

The Visiter, where'er it comes,
Would come to wish a happy year.

Six times its annual round gone o'er,
Greeted by childhood's beaming eyes,

Seeking the light of truth to pour,
And point where deathless pleasure lies.

That blessed task it would renew ;
With this year's earliest Sabbath ray,

Would turn those youthful eyes to view
Jesus, the light, the truth, the way.

For truly blest are they alone,
Who of the Savior think aright;

Whose willing hearts rejoice to own
His easy yoke, and burden light.

'Tis not the burst of thoughtless mirth,
That speaks a soul at peace within ;

Their happiness is better worth,
Who taste the joys of pardoned sin.

These joys, that not with fleeting years Shall pass away, O may ye gain, Children of Zion's prayers and tearsThe precious plants she loves to train. WOL. Wii. 1
