Else, on the fatalist's anrighteous plaa,
Say to what bar amenable were al
With nought in charge, he could betraj so te,
And, if he fell, would fall because be nes
If Love reward him, or if Vengenace strike,
His recompence in both unjust alike.
Divine authority within his breast
Brings ev'ry thought, wordi, action, to the test;
Warns him or prompts, approves hin er resouro
As Reason, or as Passion, takes the reios.
Heav'o froin above, and Conscieace frou Tiba
Cries in his startled ear-Abelain from sa!
The world around solicits his desire,
And kindles in his soul a tre.ch'rous fire ;
While, all his purposes and steps to guard

Peace follows Virtue as its sure reward;
And Pleasure brings us surely ia her traia
Remorse, and Sorrow, and viadictive Pain.

Man, thus endu'd with an electire roke,
Must be supplied with objects of his chine,
Where'er he turns, enjoyment and dedit,
Or present, or in prospect, meet his sight;
Those open on the spot their honey'd rate;
These call him loudly to pursuit
llis unexhausted mine the sordid rice
Avarice siows, and virtue is the price.
Her various motives his ambition raise-
Pow'r, pomp, and splendour, and the best

praise;
There Beauty wooes hin with expanded areas;
E'en Bacchanaliza madness fias its charns.

Nor these alone, whose pleasures less reáil
Vight well alarm the most unguarded mind,
Seek to supplant his inexperienc d youth,
Or lead him devious from the path of trut;
Hourly allurements on his passions press,
Sate in themselves, but dang rous ia th' escala

Hark! how it fiouts upon the dewy air!
O what a dying, dying close was there!
