Rev. Antonius Darms, (1869- ) 1897.
day by day; His arm; at a time;
1. 'Tis so sweet to walk with Jesus, Step by step and
Stepping in His very foot-prints, Walking with Him all the way. Following closely where He leads us, None can hurt and naught can harm. Heights I have not wings to soar to, Step by step my feet can climb. Step-ping in His very foot-prints, Walking with Thee all the way.
I HEAR A VOICE, "TIS SOFT AND SWEET.
REV. ROBERT F. SEMPLE.
Beardsley Van De Water.
1. I hear a voice, 'tis soft and sweet, It bids my sin-sick soul rejoice; 2. When weary with my load of guilt, I'll not for- get that "Christ is all;" 3. My soul is troub-led like the sea, The sur-ging bil-lows roll a-round;
The same was heard in Sa-lem's street, And in the mountain's cool retreat,
KIND WORDS CAN NEVER DIE.
ABIGAIL HUTCHINSON, (1821-1892)
Abigail Hutchinson, (1821-1892)
1. Kind words can 2. Sweet thoughts can 3. Our souls can
nev-er die, Cher-ished and blest; God knows how deep they lie, nev-er die, Though, like the flowers, Their brightest hues may fly nev-er die, Though in the tomb We may all have to lie,
Stored in the breast; Like childhood's simple rhymes, Said o'er a thousand times, In wintry hours. But when the gen-tle dew Gives them their charms anew, Wrapped in its gloom. What though the flesh decay, Souls pass in peace a way,
Ay, in all years and climes Distant and near. Kind words can never die, With many an added hue They bloom again. Sweet thoughts can nev-er die, ternal day With Christ above. Our souls can nev-er die,
Live through e
Nev-er die, nev-er die, Kind words can nev-er die, No,
nev-er die. nev-er die.
