THE

BAPTIST MAGAZINE.

JANUARY, 1872.

“ Tye Day baty enough of its own grief.”

MATT. VI. 34 (GENEVA VERSION).

TAKE no thought for the morrow, its trials or dangers,

Why burden thy spirit with deepening gloom ?
To-day hath enough to perplex and distress thee,

It needeth no shadow of dark things to come.

Take no thought for the morrow, no sorrow shall touch thee

But that which thy God in His Son hath decreed;
Go to Christ with thy grief as it daily ariseth,

And seek for His strength in the moment of need.

Take no thought for the morrow, rich mercy abounding,

Hath marked every step of thy pathway till now:
Put thy trust, then, in God for the still distant future,

Effacing those dark lines of care from thy brow.

Take no thought for the morrow, its dawning may find thee

A spirit at rest 'neath the altar of God,
With the last battle fought, the last trial ended,
The victory won through Emmanuel's blood !

BY A LADY. (Kindly communicated by Mr. Sedgwick).
