Our hearts are faint with sorrow,

Heavy and hard to bear,
For we dread the bitter morrow,

But we will not despair;
Thou knowest all our anguish,

And Thou wilt bid it cease.
O Lamb of God, who takest
The sin of the world away,
Give us Thy peace! Amen.

Yes! Thou art still the Life; Thou art the Way

The holiest know; Light, Life, and Way of heaven!
And they who dearest hope, and deepest pray,
Toil by the Light, Life, Way, which Thou hast given. Amen.

Church's sup- pli - ca- tion, Lord God Al - might - y.

A - men.

See round Thine Ark the hungry billows curling!
See how Thy foes their banners are unfurling!
Lord, while their darts envenomed they are hurling,

Thou canst preserve us.

Lord, Thou canst help when earthly armor faileth;
Lord, Thou canst save when deadly sin assaileth;
Lord, o'er Thy Rock nor death nor hell prevaileth:

Grant us Thy peace, Lord!

Peace, in our hearts, our evil thoughts assuaging,
Peace, in Thy Church, where brothers are engaging,
Peace, when the world its busy war is waging;

Calm Thy foes raging!

Grant us Thy help till backward they are driven;
Grant them Thy truth, that they may be forgiven;
Grant peace on earth, and after we have striven,
Peace in Thy heaven. Amen.

Calm Me, My God

St. Elizabeth C. M. D.

EDWARD JOHN HOPKINS

AR

1. Calm me, my God, and keep me calm, While these hot breez - es blow;

[merged small][merged small][ocr errors][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small]

Soothe me with ho - ly hymn and psalm, And bid my spir - it

rest.

Calm me, my God, and keep me calm, Calm in the hour of buoyant health,
Let Thine out-stretched wing

Calm in my hour of pain;
Be like the shade of Elim's palm,

Calm in my poverty or wealth,
Beside her desert spring.

Calm in my loss or gain;
Yes; keep me calm, though loud and rude Calm, as the ray of sun or star,
The sounds my ear that greet;

Which storms assail in vain,
Calm in the closet's solitude,

Moving unruffled through earth's war Calm in the bustling street;

The eternal calm to gain! Amen.

HORATIUS BONAR
