Not illustrated. 1867 edition. Excerpt: ... break Brightly o'er that eastern lake. Thou, my Saviour, Thou dost know, What of danger, joy, or woe Shall to-day my portion be: Let me meet it all in Thee. Thou wast meek and undefiled, --Make me holy too, and mild; Thou didst foil the tempter's power, Help me in temptation's hour. Thou didst love thy mother here, Make me gentle, kind, and dear: Thou wast subject to her word, Teach me to obey, O Lord. Fretful feelings, passion, pride, Never did with Thee abide: Make me watch myself to-day, .' That they lead me not astray. With Thee, Lord, I would arise, To Thee look with opening eyes: All the day be at my side, Saviour, Pattern, King, and Guide. THE CHILD'S EVENING HYMN. On the dark hill's western side, The last purple gleam has died; Twilight to one solemn hue Changes all, both green and blue. In the fold and in the nest, Birds and lambs are gone to rest; SEEING CHEIST. 93 Labour's weary task is o'er, Closely shut the cottage-door. 'Twas a starry night of old, When rejoicing angels told The poor shepherds of Thy birth, Jesus, as a child on earth.. i Soft and quiet is the bed, Where I lay my little head: Thou hadst but a manger bare, Rugged straw for pillow fare. Saviour, 'twas to give me grace, Thou didst stoop to that mean place Loving with a perfect love, Child and man, and God above. Hear me as alone I lie, Plead for me with God on high; All that stain'd my soul to-day, Wash it in thy blood away. If my slumbers broken be, Waking, let me think of Thee: Darkness cannot make me fear If I feel that Thou art near. Happy now I turn to sleep, Thou wilt watch around me keep: Him no danger e'er can harm, Who lies cradled on Thine arm. SEEING CHEIST. When our friends die, they are gone: we see them no more. Their love, their help, their counsel, more
