Whilst blooming fields their breathing sweets dispense,
And Ceres golden crops profusely pours,
Nature's bright scenes enliven every sense,
And gentle Evening sheds refreshing showers;
With admiration I again peruse
The striking beauties of that glowing page
Which elevates the soul to heavenly views
With sweet instruction, admonition sage;
Exalts the thought with energy sublime,
To Virtue's sacred temple rear'd on high,
Cheering with hopes beyond the bounds of time,
And blissful prospects opening from the sky—
Long may Religion's cause thy aid retain,
Whose genius prompted first my early strain!
