SHE IS NOT DEAD, BUT SLEEPETH
THE DAUGHTER OF ABRAHAM WHOM SATAN HATH BOUND

DOUBT AND BELIEF

THE HARP OF ZION SLEEPS.

"AND THE LORD SET A MARK UPON CAIN, LEST ANY FINDING HIM SHOULD

KILL HIM.”

When on his flight the first-born went, with blood

Upon his hand and heart, and every one,

Kindred and kind, the avenger; still Heaven's sun Gave him its light and warmth ; and still the flood

And fountain slaked his thirst; and eve and morn Breathed their soft blessings on the wretch forlorn :

B

God's voice were these, and that voice bade him yet

Look up to Him who for all creatures caresWho on his awful brow the symbol set

Of a command, SPARE WHOM JEHOVAH SPARES. Rise then, thou trampled soul, from the world driven,

Like Cain the accursed, for loud crying sins; Look up, pray, hope, nor judge by earth of Heaven,

For oft man's mercy ends where God's begins.
