xtt Wrt NOT THE GLORY OP CJBSAR BUT THE WELPAKE or ROME BY II. B. STACY. BURLINGTON, VERMONT, FRIDAY, JUL Y 12, 1844. GOD IlIiESS VOU." I've listened to the cold farewell The careless, short good bye, When not a tear of sadness fell. Or tributary sigh. I've felt the pressure of the hand At purlin;, 'gainst mine own, The severing of a happy hand, That long in love had grown, Hut never did they wake the thotieht, Thy sweet " God bless you " fondly brought. It osketh for a mightier power, To guard the loved one here. When in the dreary tempest hour, Thou art not nigh to cheer. A Grin reliance on his care, Who rules above the sky, A truslingncss, that looks to share The watching of his eye A hope that they who loved iheo well May in his favor brightly dwell. " God bless you "in long after years I'll hold it to my heart, And check the quick and bitter tears, That from their fountain start. I'll merit, with a soul breathed prayer, In trustinj fervor given, That great, alt-mighty, watchful...
