“It is truly a most Christian exercise to extract a sentiment of piety from the works and the appearances of Nature. It has the authority of the sacred writers upon its side, and even our Saviour Himself gives it the weight and the solemnity of His example. • Behold the lilies of the field; they toil not, neither do they spin, yet your Heavenly Father careth for them.' He expatiates on the beauty of a single flower, and draws from it the delightful argument of confidence in God. He gives us to see that taste may be combined with piety, and that the same heart may be occupied with all that is serious in the contemplations of Religion, and be at the same time alive to the charms and loveliness of Nature."--DR. CHALMERS.
