4 In scenes exalted or depressed,

Be Thou our joy, and Thou our rest;
Thy goodness all our hopes shall raise,
Adored through all our changing days. Amen.

2 O happy home, where two in heart united

In holy faith and blessèd hope are one,
Whom death a little while alone divideth,

And cannot end the union here begun!
3 O happy home, whose little ones are given

Early to Thee, in humble faith and prayer,
To Thee, their Friend, Who from the heights of heaven

Guides them, and guards with more than mother's care!
4 O happy home, where each one serves Thee, lowly,

Whatever his appointed work may be,
Till every common task seems great and holy,

When it is done, O Lord, as unto Thee!
5 O happy home, where Thou art not forgotten

When joy is overflowing, full and free,
O happy home, where every wounded spirit

Is brought, Physician, Comforter, to Thee,
6 Until at last, when earth's day's-work is ended,

All meet Thee in the blessed home above,
From whence Thou camest, where Thou hast ascended,
Thy everlasting Home of peace and love! Amen.

The kind, the brave, the true, the sweet, Who walk with us no

2 'Tis hard to take the burden up,

When these have laid it down;
They brightened all the joy of life,

They softened every frown:
But oh, 'tis good to think of them,

When we are troubled sore;
Thanks be to God that such have been,

Although they are no more.

3 More homelike seems the vast unknown,

Since they have entered there;
To follow them were not so hard,

Wherever they may fare;
They cannot be where God is not,

On any sea or shore;
Whate'er betides, Thy love abides,
Our God, for evermore. Amen.

John W. CHADWICK,
