Page 272 - LET us, with a gladsome mind, Praise the Lord, for he is kind ; For his mercies aye endure, Ever faithful, ever sure.
Page 108 - When thou hast done, thou has not done, For I have more. Wilt thou forgive that sin which I have won Others to sin, and made my sin their door? Wilt thou forgive that sin which I did shun A year or two, but wallowed in a score? * When thou hast done, thou hast not done, For I have more.
Page 33 - I am distressed for thee, my brother Jonathan : Very pleasant hast thou been unto me : Thy love to me was wonderful, Passing the love of women.
Page 19 - JOIN all the glorious names Of wisdom, love, and power, That ever mortals knew, That angels ever bore,— All are too mean to speak his worth, Too mean to set my Saviour forth.
Page 107 - Sleep is a death — O make me try By sleeping what it is to die, And as gently lay my head On my grave as now my bed. Howe'er I rest, great God, let me Awake again at last with thee : And thus assured, behold I lie Securely, or to wake or die. These are my drowsy days, in vain I do now wake to sleep again. O come that hour when I shall never Sleep again, but wake for ever!
Page 34 - In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.
Page 112 - Thou hast spared me. Wherefore with my utmost art I will sing thee ; And the cream of all my heart I will bring: thee. Though my sins against me cried, Thou didst clear me ; And alone, when they replied, Thou didst hear me. Seven whole days, not one in seven, I will praise thee. In my heart, though not in heaven, I ca.n raise thee.
Page 108 - A Hymn to God, the Father Wilt Thou forgive that sin where I begun, Which was my sin, though it were done before? Wilt Thou forgive that sin, through which I run, And do run still, though still I do deplore? When Thou hast done, Thou hast not done, 5 For I have more.
Page 261 - Sun of my soul ! Thou Saviour dear, It is not night if Thou be near : Oh may no earth-born cloud arise To hide Thee from thy servant's eyes.
Page 113 - I saw Eternity the other night, Like a great Ring of pure and endless light, All calm, as it was bright; And round beneath it, Time in hours, days, years, Driven by the spheres Like a vast shadow moved; in which the world And all her train were hurled.
