Faithful to thee His mercies prove; Through death's dark vale He bids thee co

And more than conquer through His love Robes thee in righteousness divine, Apd makes thy crown of glory shine.

THE VOICE FROM GALILEE.

HEARD the voice of Jesus say,

Come unto me and rest;
Lay down, thou weary one, lay down,

Thy head upon my breast.
I came to Jesus as I was,

Weary and worn and sad,
I found in Him a resting-place,

And He has made me glad.

I heard the voice of Jesus say,

Behold, I freely give
The living water, — thirsty one,
Stoop down and drink and live.

Of that life-giving stream;
My thirst was quenched, my soul revived,

And now I live in Him.

I heard the voice of Jesus say,

I am this dark world's light;
Look unto me, thy morn shall rise,

And all thy day be bright.
I looked to Jesus, and I found

In Him my Star, my Sun;
And in that light of life I'll walk

Till travelling days are done.

BONAR.

EVENING HYMN.

UN of my soul, Thou Saviour dear,

It is not niglit if Thou be near;
Oh, may no earth-born cloud arise
To hide Thee from Thy servant's eyes!

When the soft dews of kindly sleep
My wearied eyelids gently steep,

Forever on my Saviour's breast.

life-giving stream; ; was quenched, my soul revived, w I live in Him.

Abide with me from morn till eve, For without Thee I cannot live; Abide with me when night is nigh, For without Thee I dare not die.

le voice of Jesus say, vis dark world's light;

If some poor wandering child of Thine Have spurned to-day the voice divine, Now, Lord, the gracious work begin, Let him no more lie down in sin.

o me, thy morn shall rise,

thy day be bright o Jesus, and I found my Star, my Sun; it light of life I'll walk elling days are done.

BONAR,

Watch by the sick, enrich the poor
With blessings from thy boundless store;
Be every mourner's sleep to-night
Like infants' slumbers, pure and light.

Come near and bless us when we wake,
Ere through the world our way we take;
Till, in the ocean of Thy love,
We lose ourselves in heaven above.

VENING HYMN.

[ocr errors]

H, timely happy, timely wise,
Hearts that with rising morn arise !
Eyes that the beam celestial view,
Which evermore makes all things new!

New every morning is Thy love,
Our wakening and uprising prove;
Through sleep and darkness safely brought,
Restored to life, and power, and thought.

New mercies, each returning day,
Hover around us while we pray ;
New perils past, new sins forgiven,
New thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven.

If, on our daily course, our mind
Be set to hallow all we find,
New treasures still, of countless price,
God will provide for sacrifice.

Old friends, old scenes, will lovelier be,
As more of heaven in each we see;
Some softening gleam of love and prayer
Shall dawn on every cross and care.

MORNING.

Untired we ask, and ask again, Ever, in its melodious store, Finding a spell unheard before.

When they have sworn, and steadfast mea
Counting the cost, in all t'espy
Their God -- in all themselves deny.

Oh, could we learn that sacrifice,
What lights would all around us rise !
How would our hearts with wisdom talk
Along life's dullest, dreariest walk!

We need not bid, for cloistered cell, Our neighbor and our work farewell, Nor strive to wind ourselves too high For sinful man beneath the sky.

The trivial round, the common task, Will furnish all we ought to ask; Room to deny ourselves; a road To bring us, daily, nearer God.

Seek we no more; content with these, Let present rapture, comfort, ease,

old scenes, will lovelier be, jeaven in cach we see; ng gleam of love and prayer in every cross and care.
