Green pastures are before me,
Which yet I have not seen; Bright skies will soon be o'er me,
Where the dark clouds have been. My hope I cannot measure,
The path to life is free; My Saviour has my treasure, And He will walk with me. Amen.

250 O Grant Us Light, That We May Know Lundie L. M.
JOHN BAPTISTE CALKIN
1. O grant us light, that we may know The wisdom Thou a - lone canst give;
That truth may guide where'er we go, And vir-tue bless where'er we live. A-men.
O grant us light, that we may see
Where error lurks in human lore,
And love Thy simple word the more.
Ogrant us light, that we may learn
How dead is life from Thee apart,
To Thee an undivided heart.
O grant us light, in grief and pain,
To lift our burdened hearts above,
And bless our Father's hidden love.
O grant us light, when, soon or late,
All earthly scenes shall pass away,
To deathless home and endless day. Amen.

Auributed to JAMES NARES
1. Rise, my soul! and stretch thy wings, Thybet - ter
Rise from tran - si - to - ry
things, Towards heav'n, thy na - tive place:
Sun and moon and stars de - cay; Time shall soon this earth re - move;
Rise, my soul! and haste a - way
To seats pre-pared a - bove. A-men. '
Rivers to the ocean run,
Nor stay in all their course;
Both speed them to their source;
Pants to view His glorious face,
To rest in His embrace.
