The kind, the brave, the true, the sweet, Who walk with us

[blocks in formation]

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 hetides, Thy love abides,
Our God, for evermore. Amen.

JOHN W. CHADWICK.

2 ( Christ! Whose voice the waters heard And give, for wild confusion, peace;

And hushed their raging at Thy word, Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee
Who walked'st on the foaming deep, For those in peril on the sea!
And calm amidst its rage didst sleep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee 4 O Trinity of love and power!
For those in peril on the sea!

Our brethren shield in danger's hour;

From rock and tempest, fire and foe, 3 Most Holy Spirit! Who didst brood Protect them whereso'er they go; Upon the chaos dark and rude,

Thus evermore shall rise to Thee And bid its angry tumult cease,

Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.

Amen. WILLIAM WHITING

6 Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,

God the One in Three,
Bless them, guide them, save them, keep them
Near to Thee. Amen.

4 Great God of our salvation, Thee

We love, we worship, we adore;
Our refuge on time's changeful sea,
Our joy on heaven's eternal shore. Amen.
