With kind and cruel ministries
 Nature assays her metals fine,
And Heaven, bestowing joys and griefs
 With equal hand benign,
Attempers what it holds most dear—
Adds now a smile and now a tear,
 Till it creates with touch divine
 A soul like thine, a soul like thine!—
Ever to loftiest counsels moved,
By all men honoured, and by all beloved.
