1. We would see Je-sus-for the shadows lengthen Across this lit-tle landscape of our life;
We would see Jesus, our weak faith to strengthen, For the last weariness-the final strife. AMEN.
2 We would see Jesus — the great Rock Foundation,
Whereon our feet were set with sovereign grace;
Can thence remove us, if we see His face.
Which for long years we have rejoiced to see:
We would not mourn them, for we go to Thee.
Strength, joy, and willingness come with the sight;

3 Grace led my roving feet
To tread the heavenly road;
264 Portuguese Hymn. 11s.
1. How firm a foun-da-tion, ye saints of the Lord, Is laid for your faith in His
excellent word! What more can Hesay, than to you Hehath said, — To you, who for
ref-uge to Je-sus have fled? To you, who for ref-uge to Je-sus have fled? A-MEN.
2 "Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,
For I am thy God, I will still give thee aid;
Upheld by my gracious, omnipotent hand.
The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.
My sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love;
Like lambs they shall still in my bosom be borne.
I will not-I will not desert to his foes;
3 I rest my soul on Jesus,
This weary soul of mine;
I on His breast recline.
Emmanuel, Christ, the Lord;
His name abroad is poured. 4 I long to be like Jesus,
Meek, loving, lowly, mild;
The Father's holy Child:
Amid the heavenly throng,
When burdened with my sin;
To give me peace within!
He cleansed it in His blood;
I found my peace with God. 2 Sweet is the cross of Jesus!
There let my weary heart
Till with Him, ne'er to part;
I'll sing His wondrous power,
267 Olivet. 6s, 4s.
2 May Thy rich grace impart
Wipe sorrow's tears away,
Nor let me ever stray
From Thee aside.
4 When ends life's transient dream, O may my love to Thee Pure, warm, and changeless be,
When death's cold, sullen stream
Shall o'er me roll,
Blest Saviourl then, in love, 3 While life's dark maze I tread,
Fear and distrust remove;
O bear me safe above,
A ransomed soul!

Rock, I stand; All other ground is sinking sand, All other ground is sinking sand. A - MEN.
2 When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
My anchor holds within the veil.
Support me in the whelming flood:
When all around my soul giveş way,
He then is all my hope and stay.
O may I then in Him be found;
269 Wellesley. 8s, 7s.
2 There is welcome for the sinner, 4 For the love of God is broader And more graces for the good;
Than the measure of man's mind; There is mercy with the Saviour; And the heart of the Eternal There is healing in His blood.
Is most wonderfully kind. 3 There is plentiful redemption
5 If our love were but more simple, In the blood that has been shed;
We should take Him at His word; There is joy for all the members
And our lives would be all sunshine In the sorrows of the Head.
In the sweetness of our Lord.

2 'Tis everlasting peace,
Sure as Jehovah's name; 'Tis stable as His steadfast throne,
For evermore the same. 3 The clouds may go and come,
And storms may sweep the sky,
This blood-sealed friendship changes not,
The cross is ever nigh.
The Christ can never die;
