HOLY LOVE.

7" VE'S holy flame for ever hurneth,
"^ from heaven it came, to heaven returneth.
too oft on earth a troubled guest,
at times deceived, at times opprest,
it here is tried and purified,
then hath in heaven its perfect rest :
it soweth here with toil and care,
but the harvest time of love is there.

R. SOUTHEY.

DIVS AMOR.

T^DITVS e caelo, caelo reddendus, in aeuum
~^^ fulyet inexhausti fo)is sacer ignis Amor.
saepius in terris mala sustinet anxius hospes,

decipiturque dolis opprimiturque minis,
eluit hie uitae labem per mille dolores ;

at pura requie perfruiturus ibi est.
hie sementis habet curam durosque labores,

ut metat in caelo commoda pads Amor.

B. H. K.

WAS GOTT THUT, DAS 1ST WOHLGETHAN.

JT^OMMT dir ein Schmerz, so halte still
-**- und frage, was er von dir will,
die evi'ge Liebe schickt dir keinen
bloss darum, dass dii mogest weinen.

E. Okibel.

SWEET ARE THE USES OF ADVERSITY.

/^OMES to thee pain, then hold thee still,

search meekly, xvhat it of thee mil.
Eternal Love ne^er deals a blow,
that human tears in vain may flow.
