Securely shall my ashes lie, Waiting the summons from on high. 5 Asleep in Jesus ! time nor space Debars this precious hiding-place ; On Indian plains, or Lapland snows, Believers find the same repose.
Page 118 - And, though the light shines bright on high More softly do the sea-gems glow, That sparkle in the depths below. The rainbow's tints are only made When on the waters they are laid ; And sun and moon most sweetly shine Upon the ocean's level brine. There 's beauty in the deep.
