His goodness led thee till thy feet had enter'd

The little "Tadmor" where His children dwell, And gave thee rest where His dear Church has centred, Within the music of the Sabbath bell.

And then He call'd thee-oh, that voice so thrilling,
All that it said we cannot learn below;

But that with triumph all thy heart was filling,
Thy broken words have taught us well to know.

Oh, what a Sabbath of intense communion

Was that which God bestow'd upon His child! And with his Saviour what a perfect union!

Oh, with what brightness the Deliverer smiled!

God's glory there was round about him shining,
His holy presence all the place imbued,
More and yet more the dying saint refining,

While round him crowds of weeping brethren stood.

As o'er her darling's couch a mother bending,

Lest fright or pain should make the loved one weep, So by his couch his Saviour was attending, Until He gave "to His beloved sleep."

Yes, thus He comes, and with His sweet caressing,
Soothes the dear child that He had died to save;
Lays hands upon him richly fill'd with blessing;
And guards his ashes in a foreign grave.

THE POWER OF PRAYER:

AS ILLUSTRATED IN THE WONDERFUL DISPLAYS OF DIVINE GRACE IN THE RECENT RELIGIOUS AWAKENING

IN AMERICA.

BY S. I. PRIME, D.D., NEW YORK.

THIS volume is an authentic and graphic account of the rise, progress,

features, and results of the most remarkable Revival of Religion in the modern history of the Church. It opens with a rapid view of the state of the country prior to the commercial panic of 1857; the excitement and changes that ensued; and the religious interest that was awakened in the summer of that year and found expression in the daily meetings for prayer. It presents

The Origin and Progress of the Noon-day Prayer-Meetings.

The most remarkable Answers to Prayer.

Wonderful Conversions in New York and other Places.

Thrilling Incidents gathered from actual Conversations.

Effect on Business and Business Men, with striking Illustrations.

The Effects among the Children and Youth.

Power of the Revival on Crime and Criminals.

Spread of the Revival over the Country.

Prayers of Parents for Children answered.

Thoughts on Prayer, by Rev. J. C. Ryle, and Rev. Drs Guthrie and Alex

ander.

Review of the Subject, and Prospects of the Revival.

"Never since apostolic days has there been such a record of the Power of Prayer."London Record.

"A work of thrilling interest in connexion with the American Revival."-Family Treasury.

"A trustworthy narrative of the rise, progress, and results of the great American Revival, has been urgently needed, this Dr Prime has supplied. His high standing among the American Churches enables him to speak with authority. In front of this work, the whole Church of Christ ought to stand abashed and confounded at its neglect of prayer, and unbelief in its efficacy. Every page of this volume is a commentary on our Lord's words, Ask, and ye shall receive.' We would say to every one whom our words reach, READ THIS BOOK!"-Baptist Magazine.

"A volume glowing with heavenly fire-a page, as it were, of the Book of Life, full of such facts as we should doubtless find inscribed there in lines of everlasting light."-The Patriot.

HENRY WARD BEECHER'S LIFE THOUGHTS.

REVISED AND CORRECTED BY HIMSELF.

17,000 COPIES

of this remarkable book have been sold during the past six months, and the demand for it remains as active as when it was first published. No book ever issued from the press has received more unqualified praise, from both religious and secular journals, than this. From a very large number, we select a few at random.

"Every page is covered with sentences full of life-rich, deep. strong, beautiful. You will search in it vainly for aught that's dull. The facility of illustration manifested is marvellous. Knowledge, imagination, shrewdness, and piety are admirably blended. Taking this book as a whole, we can only say the like of it will not soon occur again, unless we have more of Beecher's Life Thoughts."-From the Evangelical Magazine.

LIFE THOUGHTS.

HENRY WARD BEECHER.

17,000 COPIES SOLD.

"They are pregnant with celestial fire, rich in suggestive and original thought. Here we find nuggets of gold and gems of the first water. . . . . Beecher is not a model, but he is better; he is capital, available capital on which others may draw, and send what they draw into currency in thoughts and words that will do the world a vast deal of good."-From the London Press.

17,000 COPIES SOLD IN SIX MONTHS.

"Here are 400 pages of the wisest, deepest, and most striking utterances, by one of the most original, brilliant, and versatile minds of the age."-From the Baptist Quarterly. "These 'Life Thoughts' are caught and preserved with all their winged splendour and palpitating vitality. Probably, there is no preacher living, if any has ever lived, whose discourses afford so many beauties and gems of thought, as Henry Ward Beecher's 'Life Thoughts' shew. The book is a wilderness of luxuriant fruits and flowers. One revels in the profusion of his rich and blossoming thoughts, which gush forth from his mind as waters from a fountain, each jet bursting into a thousand gems, that sparkle and play in the sunlight, and fall in refreshing spray upon the soul. We feel that we should like always to sit under such delightful droppings, and gaze upon such beauty for ever." -From the New England Quarterly Review for May.

As all the readers of "Life Thoughts" are aware, Mr BEECHER is a practical farmer and gardener, as well as an eminent preacher and divine. While wearied out, some time ago, with over-exertion in ministerial duties-from preaching EVERY NIGHT for eighteen consecutive months-he turned for relaxation to Agricultural and Floricultural studies. The Papers in this Volume are the result.
