State of Immortal Pain or Biifi ! When I repeat thy awful Name, I feel a Shock thro' all my Frame ; My Spirits faint and melt away, As Heaven and Earth fhall on that folerrm Day, When Heaven and Earth and Time fhall be All fwallow'd up In Thee ; When none their fcatter'd Image- fnall trace, Or f*3y what once were Days, where once was place ! ii. Thou art ! our v:ry Nature tells us fo ; Yet What thou art, haw fhall we know ? There's fomething in us confeicrus it fhall laft, When Sun and Stars are in;' Oblivion call. Yet this Immortal Something now cennn'd In a frail Tenement of Clay, Whsls it perceives That fubject to Decay, The Myft'ry of itfelf it drives in vain to had. in. Let.Reafon here take in here Oar, Ncr tempt a dang'rous Ocean mere ; She fees the Country from afar ; But what its Laws and Ccnftitutions are, She never can explore .' A Soul reflecting and afpiring ftill A Soul no finite Happinefs can fil], That grafps the Future and retains the Paft, ' Tis reafonable This fhould ever laft ! Yet what it is to Be Without an End Wc cannot comprehend, Tho' in the Search our Span of Life we fpead. IV. Thou art no Bogbear Tale contriv'd of old, Grown popular by often being told; As fome prefumptuous Men pretend to bold . The Sentiments we have of Thee, Immenfe, unknown Eternity, On cool Refk&ion ev'ry Man may find Imprinted deeper on his Mind Than Education's Stamp, or Prejudice can be, 'Tis Part of us, this lafting, ailive Care To do well when wecome-we know not where. V.- O could we once be wafted o'er To view thee from thy native Shore, Before we go from hence to Be no more '. Before this various State exchang'd fhall be For an eternal State in Thee ! Then the great Secret we'd fasliliarize ; And when the Voice of Fate fhould call, We'd yield our Sou is, at leaft, without Surprize-But now-Tis a dark Profpeff. ail. Now forth we fail, uncertain where we go Or what it means-to be for-ever fo. VI. But ceafe, my Soul .' thou art pofieft With lawlefs Curiofity, atbeft: Th' Almighty hence would have thee learn That fecret Things are none of thy Concern. Thou know'ft not thy own Future State, And would'ft thou Heaven's deep Councils penetrate ? Or more prefumptuoufly pietend Th' Eternal Infinite to comprehend ? Enough, thou mufh as all before have done, Ere long launch forth into this vaft Unknown ! When all the Myft'ries that perplex thee here Irropen Lufue fhall appear. Endeavour thou to make thy Peace fecure, That with Eteraity thy Pleafure may endure. Bank Stock 327. India Ditto -76. South Sea Stock 102 1 4th. Ditto Old Annuities 98 3 4ths a go.
