Heaven's light is not more cheering,
As we think how-walking humbly
If He loves us, what can grieve us?
Heaven's light is not more cheering,

For our hearts are full of tears,
Let us lean up-on His arm;
Love for you and love for me;

Heaven's dews are not more free.
This low earth for wear y years,
If He keeps us, what can harm?
Heaven's dews are not more free.

As a child, in pain or terror, Hides him in His mother's breast,
With-out rich-es, with-out dwelling, Wound-ed sore by foe and friend,
Still He lays His hand in bless-ing On each up-turned seeking face,

D. C.

As a sail or seeks the ha-ven,-We would come to Him for rest.
In the Garden, and in dy -ing-Jesus loved us to the end.
And in heaven His children's angels Near the throne have always place.

BLESSED ARE THE PURE IN HEART.

6 8

1. Blessed are the pure in heart, They have loved the better part; 2. When the sun begins to rise, Spreading brightness, through the skies, 3. When the leaves in autumn die, Falling fast and si - lent - ly,

John Pyke Hullah, (1812-1884)

When life's jour-ney they have trod,
They will love to praise and bless

They shall go to see their God.
Christ, the Son of Righteousness.

These," they think," that now seem dead, Shall in spring lift up their head."

Till in glory they ap- pear,
In the watches of the night,
God in every thing they see;

They shall oft- en see Him here;
When the stars are clear and bright,
First in all their thoughts is He;

And His grace shall learn to know In His glorious works below. "Thus the just shall shine" they say, "In the Resur-rec- tion - day." They have loved the better part;-Bless-ed are the pure in heart!

A-men.
