Page 160 - I heard the voice of Jesus say, " I am this dark world's Light ; Look unto Me, thy morn shall rise, And all thy day be bright." I looked to Jesus, and I found In Him my Star, my Sun ; And in that Light of life I'll walk Till travelling days are done ! H.
Page 152 - I LAY my sins on Jesus, The spotless Lamb of God, He bears them all, and frees us From the accursed load. I bring my guilt to Jesus, To wash my crimson stains White in His blood most precious, Till not a spot remains.
Page 73 - Not myself, but the truth that in life I have spoken, Not myself, but the seed that in life I have sown, Shall pass on to ages, — all about me forgotten, Save the truth I have spoken, the things I have done.
Page 74 - Tis not for man to trifle ! Life is brief, And sin is here. Our age is but the falling of a leaf, A dropping tear. We have no time to sport away the hours, All must be earnest in a world like ours.
Page 246 - I dare not choose my lot : I would not, if I might ; Choose thou for me, my God, So shall I walk aright.
Page 220 - Go, labour on while it is day ; The world's dark night is hastening on ; Speed, speed thy work ; cast sloth away ; It is not thus that souls are won. 5 Men die in darkness at your side, Without a hope to cheer the tomb ; Take up the torch and wave it wide, The torch that lights time's thickest gloom. 6 Toil on, faint not, keep watch, and pray; Be wise the erring soul to win ; Go forth into the world's highway, Compel the wanderer to come in. 7 Toil on, and in thy toil rejoice; For toil comes rest,...
Page 245 - THY way, not mine, O Lord, However dark it be ! Lead me by Thine own hand, Choose out the path for me. Smooth let it be, or rough, It will be still the best ; Winding or straight, it leads Right onward to Thy rest.
Page 182 - Calm in the hour of buoyant health ; Calm in my hour of pain ; Calm in my poverty or wealth ; Calm in my loss or gain ; Calm in the sufferance of wrong, Like Him who bore my shame ; Calm 'mid the threatening, taunting...
Page 162 - Here grasp with firmer hand the eternal grace, And all my weariness upon Thee lean. 2 Here would I feed upon the bread of God ; Here drink with Thee the royal wine of heaven ; Here would I lay aside each earthly load ; Here taste afresh the calm of sin forgiven.
Page 39 - Saint after saint on earth Has lived, and loved, and died ; And, as they left us one by one, We laid them side by side : We laid them down to sleep, But not in hope forlorn ; We laid them but to ripen there, Till the last glorious morn.
