MOSES REFUSED TO BE CALLED THE SO OF PHAROAH'S DAUGHTER. BY JOH BUSTAED. When humble men are " set on high" And daily grow in grace ; They keep their staff, and sandals, nigh, Prepared to quit their place. And well they may : — below the skies, Uncertainty prevails ; — Untoward circumstances rise ; — And human wisdom fails. Oft men, perverse, and wrathful, too, Despise the least control ; And, reckless of the ills they do, Charge other* with the whole, Soon those who love and serve the Lord, May suffer for His name ; — May he oppremtd — accure'd — ttbkorr'di — Be put to open shame.And need a Frii.nh, who nobly dare, Come forth, join, lead, and guide The suffering band, and with them share, The perils which betide. Thus once it was : — When M set on nigh," And looking far a crown. Meek Moses heard his brethren's cry, And to their help came down. How great the sacrifice he made, To aid his suffering race ! What moral courage he display'd Through faith, in God's rich grace.
 
For mental conflicts had prevail'd, Within his noble breast : Earth's glories, with their charms, assail'd, And by their claims distress'd. Yes ! " Sinful Pleasures" cried,, " Delay ; Our season's just begun : Accept — enJoy — and with us stay ; — Life's course has far to run." But Reason, Knowledge, Conscience came With Truth's convincing light : By these Earth's gadding group, with shame, Ere long, were put to flight. Yet — how could Moses hear his name, And from the court depart, As she who gave it had a claim, Which, doubtless, wrung his heart. He owed her much — and yet — 'twas less Than she — her sire — and race — Were owing his, whose sore distress, Made him resign his place. How could he keep it, while he saw Still heavier tasks impos'd ; His brethren, writhing in their woe, — Some dying — ere it clos'd. He heard them cry to Heav'n for aid, With less of hope than fear : God bade him help them : — he obey'd, And brought deliv'rance near. But ah ! — in him, they would not see The saviour they desir'd ; But through perverseness, made him flee ; — To Midian he retired.
