I can command the lightning, and am dust!
A monarch and a slave—a worm, a god!
Whence came I here, and how ? so marvelously
Constructed and conceived ? unknown! this clod
Lives surely through some higher energy ;

For from itself alone it could not be!
10. Creator, yės! Thy wisdom and Thy word

Created me! Thou source of life and good!
Thou spirit of my spirit, and my Lord !
Thy light, Thy love, in their bright plenitude
Filled me with an immortal soul, to spring
Over the abyss of death ; and băde it wear
The garments of eternal day, and wing
Its heavenly flight beyond this little sphere,

Even to its source—to Thee—its Author there. 11. O thoughts ineffable! O visions blest!

Though worthless our conceptions all of Thee,
Yět shall Thy shadowed image fill our breast,
And waft its homage to Thy Deity.
God! thus alone my lowly thoughts can soar,
Thus seek thy presence—Being wise and good!
Midst Thy vast works admire, obey, ădore ;
And when the tongue is eloquent no more
The soul shall speak in tears of gratitude.

DERZHAVEN. GABRIEL ROMANOVITCH DERZHAVIN, a Russian lyric poet, was born in Kasan, July 3d, 1743. IIe gained distinction in the military and civil service, receiving the appointment of secretary of state in 1791, and of minister of justice in 1802. Many of his poems abound with beautiful moral sentiments and expressions, especially the above ode to "God," which was translated into several European languages, and into Chinese and Japanese. It is said to have been hung up in the palace of the emperor of China, printed in gold letters on white satin: it was in like manner placed in the temple of Jeddo. His complete works, in five volumes, appeared at St. Petersburg in 1810. He died July 6th, 1816. The above admirable translation was made by Sir John Bowring, British governor of Hong Kong
