LYTE.          (ll,1lllI1)             From the Hallelujah, by Dr. MASON.
By pemliss on. 
1 .y rest is in heaven, my rest is nt here, Then why should I murmur when
trials are near I Be hush'd, my dark spirit, the worst tht can come, But
shortens my journeyv, and hmstens me home 
2.    The thorn and the thistle a - round me may grow, I would not lie down
upon ros-es be- low; I ask for no portion, seek not to be blest, Till I find
in mil joy Mid my rest, 
I                                                 I:      Ii G- - -   --I

3. A       ictions may grieve me, but can not (estroy, One glimpse of his
love turns them all into ioy: And bitterest tears, if he smile but on them,
Like deVV in the sunsine, grow diaiopd and gem. 
4.   A scrip on my back, and a stall in my hand, I march on in haste through
an eneiy's land The road may be roegh, bitt it can not be long, I'll smooth
it with hope, and I'l cheer it with song
