Page 9 - Ere the evening lamps are lighted, And, like phantoms grim and tall, Shadows from the fitful fire-light Dance upon the parlor wall; Then the forms of the departed Enter at the open door; The beloved, the true-hearted, Come to visit me once more...
Page 6 - I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve...
Page 69 - FAR from the world, O Lord, I flee, From strife and tumult far ; From scenes where Satan wages still His most successful war. 2 The calm retreat, the silent shade, With prayer and praise agree, And seem by thy sweet bounty made, For those who follow thee.
Page 9 - And with them the Being Beauteous, Who unto my youth was given, More than all things else to love me, And is now a saint in heaven. With a slow and noiseless footstep Comes that messenger divine, Takes the vacant chair beside me, Lays her gentle hand in mine. And she sits and gazes at me With those deep and tender eyes, Like the stars, so still and saint-like, Looking downward from the skies.
Page 89 - MAY the grace of Christ our Saviour. And the Father's boundless love, With the Holy Spirit's favour, Rest upon us from above. 2 Thus may we abide in union With each other and the Lord ; And possess, in sweet communion, Joys which earth cannot afford.
Page 47 - O'er all those wide extended plains Shines one eternal day; There God, the Son, for ever reigns, And scatters night away. 4 No chilling winds, or poisonous breath, Can reach that healthful shore; Sickness and sorrow, pain and death, Are felt and feared no more.
Page 39 - Joy of heaven, to earth come down, Fix in us Thy humble dwelling, All Thy faithful mercies crown ! Jesus, Thou art all compassion, Pure, unbounded love, Thou art ; Visit us with Thy salvation, Enter every trembling heart. 2 Breathe, O breathe Thy loving Spirit Into every troubled breast ; Let us all in Thee inherit, Let us find Thy promised rest; Take away the love of sinning, Alpha and Omega be ; End of faith, as its beginning, Set our hearts at liberty.
Page 47 - When shall I reach that happy place, And be forever blest ? When shall I see my Father's face, And in his bosom rest ? Filled with delight, my raptured soul Would here no longer stay : Though Jordan's waves around me roll, Fearless I'd launch away.
Page 86 - Titus ii 10-13. 621 1 So let our lips and lives express The holy gospel we profess; So let our works and virtues shine, To prove the doctrine all divine.
Page 66 - In our sickness, in our health ; In our want or in our wealth, If we look to God in prayer, God is present everywhere.
