Page 34 - I'd be Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer to thee ! •3. There let the way appear, Steps unto heaven ; All that thou sendest me, In mercy given; Angels to beckon me Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer to thee ! 4.
Page 57 - Lo, such the child whose early feet The paths of peace have trod; Whose secret heart, with influence sweet, Is upward drawn to God. 3 By cool Siloam's shady rill The lily must decay ; The rose that blooms beneath the hill Must shortly fade away.
Page 51 - Sweet hour of prayer ! sweet hour of prayer ! Thy wings shall my petition bear, To him whose truth and faithfulness, Engage the waiting soul to bless ; And since he bids me seek his face, Believe his word, and trust his grace, I'll cast on him my every care, And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer.
Page 55 - He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat; He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment seat : Oh ! be swift, my soul, to answer Him ! be jubilant, my feet !

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea, With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me : As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free, While God is marching on.
Page 53 - GOD is love ; his mercy brightens All the path in which we rove ; Bliss he wakes, and woe he lightens ; God is wisdom, God is love. 2 Chance and change are busy ever; Man decays, and ages move ; But his mercy waneth never ; God is wisdom, God is love.
Page 33 - ROCK of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee; Let the water and the blood, From Thy wounded side which flow'd, Be of sin the double cure ; Cleanse me from its guilt and power.
Page 125 - Let music swell the breeze, And ring from all the trees Sweet freedom's song! Let mortal tongues awake; Let all that breathe partake; Let rocks their silence break, The sound prolong! 4 Our fathers...
Page 49 - SWEET the moments, rich in blessing, Which before the cross I spend; Life, and health, and peace possessing, From the sinner's dying friend. Here I'll sit for ever viewing Mercy's streams in streams of blood, Precious drops my soul bedewing, Plead and claim my peace with God.
Page 64 - There at my Saviour's side, Heaven is my home ; I shall be glorified ; Heaven is my home...
Page 19 - Tempt not my soul away, Jesus is mine ; Here would I ever stay, Jesus is mine ; Perishing things of clay, Born but for one brief day, Pass from my heart away, Jesus is mine.
