“ O Sun! - Moon !-ye Stars, that move on high,

To sounds of heavenly minstrelsy,
In mystic dance; and ye that silent beam,

Join all ! O Earth repeat the song;

And thou, O heav'n! the grateful strain prolong, While all creation lists the joy-inspiring theme..

“ Hail then again, all hail, ambrosial Light!

That, darting thro' the mists of night,
Fill'st all with joy, around, beneath, above; ,

Hail to thy heart-enlivening beam,

Fair emanation of the Light Supreme ;
Emblem of bliss diyine-of more than mortal love.

“ For as thy radiance, breaking on the night, · Puts all her shadowy hosts to flight, Thus at the dawning of Religion's ray, ' • The darkling mists of Ignorance shall fly,

The Light himself shall shine, and bending from the sky, Bid spread th' ethereal-blaze in one unclouded day!”


Placed over the grave of Miss SOPHIA MANT, daughter of the Rev. Dr. Mant, of Southampton, who died on the 17th of June, aged 24 years, and was buried at that place.

Here within this hallow'd earth,
Near the spot which gave thee birth,
(So thy parting voice desir’d)
Sleep from public haunts retir'd.

Sleep beloved !..footstep rude,
Never on thy rest intrude!
But we thy friends will softly tread,
And bless the ground where thou art laid.

O! then the stealing tear shall tell
The worth of thee we lov'd so well;
And holier thoughts shall soothe our care,
While thus we breathe the humble pray'r.


Harmless as was thy life's brief day,
So pass my peaceful hours away!
And when my evening shall decline,
May my last end be calm as thine !
