Page 8 - Forgive, blest shade, the tributary tear, That mourns thy exit from a world like this ; Forgive the wish that would have kept thee here, And stayed thy progress to the seats of bliss • No more confined to grov'ling scenes of night, No more a tenant pent in mortal clay, Now should we rather hail thy glorious flight, And trace thy journey to the realms of day.
Page 9 - Hail, glorious Gospel ! heavenly light, whereby " We live with comfort, and with comfort die'." " I wished that glorious Gospel was mine, that I might live and die with comfort ; and it seemed as if I thought it would be so.
Page 9 - It must be so — our father Adam's fall And disobedience, brought this lot on all. All die in him — but hopeless should we be, Blest Revelation, were it not for thee. Hail, glorious Gospel ! heavenly light, whereby We live with comfort, and with comfort die ; And view beyond this gloomy scene, the tomb, A life of endless happiness to come.
Page 90 - He will bear me still. Let the day be stormy, . Let the way be rough, I am on His shoulder ; Is not that enough ? When the tempest rages, I shall hear Him speak, In such soothing whispers, To my heart so weak.
