Be-neath, on earth Thy foot-stool fair, A - bove, in heav'n Thy throne. A-men.

2

Thy word is love; in lines of gold

There mercy prints its trace;
In nature we Thy steps behold,

The gospel shows Thy face.

3
Thy ways are love; though they transcend

Our feeble range of sight,
They wind, through darkness, to their end

In everlasting light.

4
Thy thoughts are love; and Jesus is

The living voice they find:
His love lights up the vast abyss

Of the Eternal Mind.

5
Thy chastisements are love; more deep

They stamp the seal divine,
And by a sweet compulsion keep
Our spirits nearer Thine.

6
Thy heaven is the abode of love:

o blessed Lord, that we
May there, when time's deep shades remove,

Be gathered home to Thee.

7
There with Thy resting saints to fall

Adoring round Thy throne;
Where all shall love Thee, Lord, and all
Shall in Thy love be one. Amen.

Lead Thou me

So long Thy power hath blest me, sure it still

Will lead me on
O'er moor and fen, o'er crag and torrent, till

The night is gone,
And with the morn those angel faces smile
Which I have loved long since, and lost awhile! Amen.

The dis - tant scene; one step e-nough for day, and spite of fears, Pride ruled my will: re - mem-ber not past years!
