1. We may not climb the heavenly steeps To bring the Lord Christ down;
2. But warm, sweet, tender, ev - en yet A present help is He;
3. The heal - ing of the seamless dress Is by our beds of pain;

[ocr errors]

In vain we search the low-est deeps, For Him no depths can drown.
And faith has yet its Ol - i - vet, And love its Gal - i - lee.
We touch Him in life's throng and press, And we are whole a - gain.

4 Through Him the first fond prayers are said

Our lips of childhood frame;
The last low whispers of our dead

Are burdened with His name.

5 O Lord and Master of us all,

Whate'er our name or sign,
We own Thy sway, we hear Thy call,

We test our lives by Thine!

My sin—not in part, but the whole,
Is nailed to His cross and I bear it no more,----

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, oh, my soul!

The clouds be rolled back as a scroll,
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,

4 Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away?

In Jesus' keeping we are safe, and they.

5 Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?

Jesus we know, and He is on the throne.

6 Peace, perfect peace, death shadowing us and ours?

Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers.

7 It is enough : earth's struggles soon shall cease,

And Jesus calls us to heaven's perfect peace.
