Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1847 edition. Excerpt: ... DEATH-BED OF JACOB.- (genesis, xlviii. 21- xlix. 22-24, 29-31.) I Die, my son! behold, I die! But cease, my Joseph, cease to weep- For God, who is our strength on high, Shall thee and all thine offspring keep: And while his stormy wrath shall sweep The spoil from many a heathen hand, Our faithful race shall safely reap The harvest fruits of Canaans land. I die, my son! behold, I die! But thou shalt like a cedar grow- Shalt lift thy branches to the sky, And firmly fix thy root below: For though the archers drew the bow, And chased thee from thy sires abode, Yet thou, whereer thy steps might go, Wast shielded by the arm of God.

I die, my son! behold, I die! And thou shalt lay these limbs distrest Where Abraham and Sarah lie, Where Isaac and Eebekah rest- Where Leahs fond and feeling breast To deaths consuming couch I gave- Where sleep the faithful and the blest, In far Machpelahs sacred cave. THE DESCENT OF THE ALMIGHTY.

(psalm xviii. 7-16.) The Almighty, in his anger, bowed the heavens Eternal arch, and to the guilty earth Descended, to destroy The unrighteous in their sins. He rode upon a cherub--on the wings Of the wild winds he flew--darkness as death Itself, and waters dark, He his pavilion made. At his avenging wrath, the conscious earth Was shaken, and the everlasting hills Heaved, as the ocean heaves Beneath the tempest-gale- The channels of the deep, where waters dwelt From the creation, now appeared, and now The worlds foundations stood Discoverd in their strength.

The Highest gave his voice--the thunders rent The canopy of heaven, and fear took hold Upon the guilty hearts Oerburdened with their crimes: He shot his lightnings forth, and, as the clouds Descend in torrents to the thirsty earth, His foes were swallowed up...
