From the Christian Observer.

WHO hush'd my infant cares to rest ?
Who lulld me on her tender breast,
And when I stirr'd more closely press'd ?

My Mother.
Who sweetly stilld my wailing cries?
Who pray'd my dawning thoughts might rise,
Above curth's fleeting vanities?

My Mother.

In early youth, who sooth'd my wo?
Who mourn'd when sickness laid me low,
But whisperd “ mercy deals the blow ?”

My Mother.
Who taught my simple heart the way,
In feeble accents first to pray ?
Who watch'd my slumbers, cheer'd my day?

My Mother
Who strove to teach my heart to glow
With gratitude, and melt at wo
Each selfish feeling to forego ?

My Mother.
Who livd in peace and died in faith;
And blest me with her latest breath?
Who grasp'd my hand and smild in death?

My Mother.
O! shade of her I held so dear!
Thy lov'd remembrance still I bear
In my sad heart-thou livest there,

My Mother.
