Page 162 - We a little longer wait ; But how little, none can know. 2 As the winged arrow flies Speedily the mark to find ; As the lightning from the skies Darts, and leaves no trace behind ; Swiftly thus our fleeting days Bear us down life's rapid stream ; Upward, Lord, our spirits raise ; All below is but a dream. '*' 3 Thanks for mercies past receive, Pardon of our sins renew ; Teach us henceforth how to live, With eternity in view.
Page 279 - Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take, The clouds ye so much dread, Are big with mercy, and shall break In blessings on your head.
Page 206 - JESUS, where'er thy people meet, There they behold thy mercy-seat ; Where'er they seek thee thou art found, And every place is hallowed ground. 2 For thou, within no walls confined, Inhabitest the humble mind ; Such ever bring thee where they come, And going, take thee to their home.
Page 34 - While I am a pilgrim here, Let Thy love my spirit cheer, As my guide, my guard, my friend, Lead me to my journey's end.
Page 326 - As a little child relies On a care beyond his own ; Knows he's neither strong nor wise, Fears to stir a step alone ; Let me thus with Thee abide, As my FATHER, Guard, and Guide.
Page 57 - Oh, for grace our hearts to soften! Teach us, Lord, at length to love; We, alas! forget too often What a Friend we have above: But when home our souls are brought, We will love Thee as we ought.

Page 300 - BEGONE, unbelief, My Saviour is near, And for my relief, Will surely appear : By prayer let me wrestle, And he will perform : With Christ in the vessel, I smile at the storm.
Page 3 - Oh for a closer walk with God! A calm and heavenly frame; A light to shine upon the road That leads me to the Lamb!
Page 201 - SAFELY through another week God has brought us on our way ; Let us now a blessing seek, Waiting in his courts to-day, — Day of all the week the best, Emblem of eternal rest.
