FLOWER OF THE FAMILY.

BY THE AUTHOR OF "LITTLE SUSY'S SIX BIRTHDAY&"

Which holds me downward, yet in my desire
To that which is above me I aspire;
And all my best affections I profess
To him that is the Sun of Righteousness."

Is on our daily course our mind
Be set to hallow all we find,
New treasures still, of countless price,
God will provide for sacrifice.

Old friends, old scenes will lovelier be
As more of heaven in each we see;
Some softening gleam of love and prayer
Shall dawn on every cross and care.

We need not bid, for cloister'd cell,
Our neighbor and our work farawell,
Nor strive to wind ourselves too high,
For sinful man beneath the sky:

The trivial round, the common task,
Would furnish all we ought to ask:
Room to deny ourselves; a road
To bring us daily nearer God.
