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;
Not life, nor death, with all their agitation,

Can thence remove us, if we see His face.
3 We would see Jesus - other lights are paling,

Which for long years we have rejoiced to see:
The blessings of our pilgrimage are failing,

We would not mourn them, for we go to Thee.
4 We would see Jesus—this is all we're needing,

Strength, joy, and willingness come with the sight;
We would see Jesus, dying, risen, pleading,
Then welcome day, and farewell mortal night!

Anna B. Warner. 263 Olmutz. S. M.

3 Grace led my roving feet

To tread the heavenly road;
And new supplies each hour I meet,
While pressing on to God.

excellent word! What more can Hesay, than to you Hehath said, — To you, who for

2 "Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,

For I am thy God, I will still give thee aid;
I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stana,

Upheld by my gracious, omnipotent hand.
3 “When through the deep waters I call thee to go,

The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;
For I will be with thee thy trouble to bless,

And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.
4 "When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
My grace, all-sufficient, shall be thy supply;

The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design

Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.
5 “E'en down to old age all my people shall prove

My sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love;
And then, when gray hairs shall their temples adorn,

Like lambs they shall still in my bosom be borne.
6 “The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,

I will not-I will not desert to his foes;
That soul—though all hell should endeavor to ake,
I'll never-no never, no never forsake!”

George Keith.

3 I rest my soul on Jesus,

This weary soul of mine;
His right hand me embraces,

I on His breast recline.
I love the name of Jesus,

Emmanuel, Christ, the Lord;
Like fragrance on the breezes

His name abroad is poured. 4 I long to be like Jesus,

Meek, loving, lowly, mild;
I long to be like Jesus,

The Father's holy Child:
I long to be with Jesus

Amid the heavenly throng,
To sing with saints His praises,
To learn the angels' song.

Horatius Bonar.

1 I saw the cross of Jesus,

When burdened with my sin;
I sought the cross of Jesus,

To give me peace within!
I brought my soul to Jesus,

He cleansed it in His blood;
And in the cross of Jesus

I found my peace with God. 2 Sweet is the cross of Jesus!

There let my weary heart
Still rest in peace unshaken,

Till with Him, ne'er to part;
And then in strains of glory

I'll sing His wondrous power,
Where sin can ne enter,'
And death is known no more.

Frederick Whitfield.

267 Olivet. 6s, 4s.

2 May Thy rich grace impart

Wipe sorrow's tears away,
Strength to my fainting heart,

Nor let me ever stray
My zeal inspire;

From Thee aside.
As Thou hast died for me,

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,
A living fire!

Blest Saviourl then, in love, 3 While life's dark maze I tread,

Fear and distrust remove;
And griefs around me spread,

O bear me safe above,
Be Thou my Guide;

A ransomed soul!
Bid darkness turn to day,

Ray Palmer. 268 Solid Rock. L. M. 61.

2 When darkness veils His lovely face,

I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,

My anchor holds within the veil.
3 His oath, His covenant, His blood,

Support me in the whelming flood:

When all around my soul giveş way,

He then is all my hope and stay.
4 When He shall come with trumpet sound,

O may I then in Him be found;
Drest in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

Edward Mote.

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.

Frederick W. Faber. 270 St. Michael. S. M.

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.
4 I change, He changes not,

The Christ can never die;
His love, not mine, the resting-place,
His truth, not mine, the tie.

Horatius Bonar.
