“Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,
For I am thy God, I will still give thee aid:
I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,

Upheld by My righteous, Omnipotent hand.

Place on the Lord reliance;

My soul, with courage wait:
His truth be thine affiance

When faint and desolate.
His might thy heart shall strengthen,

His love thy joy increase;
Mercy thy days shall lengthen:
The Lord will give thee peace. Amen.

When manhood's brows are bent in thought When shadows of the valley fall,
To learn what men of old have taught, When sin and death the soul appal,
When eager hands seek wisdom's key, One light we through the darkness see-
Wise Temple Child

Christ on the Cross
We learn of Thee!

We cry to Thee!

When doubts assail, and perils fright,
When, groping blindly in the night,
We strive to read life's mystery,

Man of the Mount,
We turn to Thee!

5
And when the world shall pass away,
And dawns at length the perfect day,
In glory shall our souls made free

Thou God enthroned
Then worship Thee!
