\ A SERMON IN RHYME. If von have a friend worth loving. Love him. Yes, and let him know That von love him, ere life's evening Tinge bis brow with sunset elow. Why should good words ne'er be said Of a friend—till he is dead? If von hear a song that thrills yon, Snng by any child of song, Praiae it.; Do-noOet thesingerj Wait deserved praise long. Why ahonld cne who thrills your keirt, Lade the joy you may impart? If yon hear a prayer that moves you By ita humHi pleading lone, Join it. So not let the seeker . Bow before his God alone. Why should not your brother share The strength of two or three in prayer? In a silvery laugh goes rippling Through the sunshine on bis face. Share it "Kb the wise man's saying— For both grief and joy a place. There'a health and goodness in the mirth In which an honest laugh hat birth, Scatter thus yonr seeds of kindness, AH enriching as you go— Leave them, 'frost the harvest Giver, He will make each seed to grow. So, until its happy end. Tour life shall n...
