Excerpt: ON A LARK FLYING TO ME FOR PROTECTION FROM A HAWK. Poor little Lark; do you expect To meet with mercy here, Although you've 'scap'd from rav'ning hawk, You've something still to fear. Although you please us with your songs, As high in air you sing, Man's mercy may be little less, Then hawk's on fleet'est wing. Yes you are safe my little bird, I will protect you now, Thy panting heart compose to rest, You're safe as I shall vow; My bosom shall with heat thee warm, Till fear shall pass away, And when the hawk is out of sight, Your song will me repay. And should the hawk again return, And keenly thee pursue, You're welcome to my arms again, For they shall shelter you. Mercy is a heav'nly gift, For mercy there abounds, If man to man no mercy shews, But cuts and deeper wounds. How can he e're expect to find, Or enter mercy's gate, When he surrenders here this life, To gain a future state ? How sweet and placid is the face, That mercy doth adorn, Serenely calm the bosom is, That cruelty doth scorn. Mercy still keeps an open door, For those that go astray, She feeds and cleads them, warms them too, And puts them on their way. Let mercy condescend tp dwell, Into this heart of mine, My actions then will stand the test, When they through mercy shine. Hawks may molest the wiaged race; .'Tis nature's course they steer, But man endow'd wkh better sense, Should merciful appear. The merciful shall mercy find, Said he who died for man, His earthly wprk was mercy aB, For mercy form'd the plan. ON SEEING...
