                      Miscellaneous.



             COME, GENEROUS INFLUENCE.



                     O generous influence, come,
                     Come, as the morning light
                     Make glorious day, our night.
                     Make clouds and shades depart,
                     Make luminous our heart.

                     0 generous Influence, come,
                     Come, as the morning dew,
                     One blade of grass, make two,
                     One lonely drooping flower,
                     An all luxuriant bower.

                     O generous Influence, come,
                     Come as the restful eve,
                     Make us no more to grieve
                     At life's uneven ways,
                     The uneven length of days.

                     Come, generous Influence, come,
                     May we be satisfied.
                     Whatever doth betide
                     In this our pilgrimage--
                     In youth or hoary age,
                     May we be strong to say:
                     Thy will be done, to-day.

Nov. 11, '98.                                   --BISHOP TANNER.
