Page 48 - A thousand ages in Thy sight Are like an evening gone ; Short as the watch that ends the night Before the rising sun. 5 Time, like an ever-rolling stream, Bears all its sons away ; They fly forgotten, as a dream Dies at the opening day...
Page 129 - A heart resigned, submissive, meek, my great Redeemer's throne; where only Christ is heard to speak, where Jesus reigns alone...
Page 114 - I'm constrained to be ! Let that grace, Lord, like a fetter, Bind my wandering heart to Thee : Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, Prone to leave the God I love ; Here's my heart, oh take and seal it, Seal it from Thy courts above.
Page 17 - Jesus, my All, to heaven is gone, He whom I fix my hopes upon; His track I see, and I'll pursue The narrow way, till him I view. 2 [The way the holy prophets went, The road that leads from banishment, The King's highway of holiness I'll go, for all his paths are peace...
Page 72 - Lo ! he comes with clouds descending, Once for favoured sinners slain ! Thousand thousand saints, attending, Swell the triumph of his train ; Hallelujah ! God appears on earth to reign. 2 Every eye shall now behold him, Robed in dreadful majesty ; Those who set at nought and sold him, Pierced and nailed him to the tree, Deeply wailing, Shall the true Messiah see.
Page 81 - THERE is a land of pure delight, Where saints immortal reign ; Infinite day excludes the night, And pleasures banish pain. 2 There everlasting spring abides, And never-withering flowers ; Death, like a narrow sea, divides This heavenly land from ours.
