Not illustrated. 1893 edition. Excerpt: ...Renew my will from day to day, Blend it with thine, and take away, All that now makes, it hard to say, "Thy Will be done." Then when on earth I breathe no more The prayer oft mixed with tears before, I'll sing upon a happier shore, "Thy Will be done." Charlotte Elliott. IN our dark and doubtful strife, Through the careful days of life, When we wander, wide and far, Lord, be thou our stay and star. In the darker wastes of thought, In the net of passions caught, When the sorrow of the heart Deepens--do not thou depart! Thou dost never leave us, though In the unbelief of woe, We have seemed to lose thy hand, Stumbling through a lonely land. Yet because we see thee not, Vainly think we are forgot, Let thy love, persistent still, Seem to seek us on the hill. Through the mist and blinding rack, Bring us from our wandering back; Over rocks, through haunted cleft, Lead us to the fold we left. There, where Love's sweet waters flow, Through thy meadows soft and low, Let thy joy in mercy spread Trees of comfort o'er our head. Stopford A. Brooke. OLET him whose sorrow No relief can find, Trust in God, and borrow Ease for heart and mind. Where the mourner weeping Sheds the secret tear, God his watch is keeping, Though none else be near. God will never leave thee, All thy wants he knows, Feels the pains that grieve thee, Sees thy cares and woes. Raise thine eyes to heaven When thy spirits quail, When by tempests driven, Heart and courage fail. W hen in grief we languish, He will dry the tear, Who his children's anguish Soothes with succour near. All our woe and sadness, In this world below, Balance not the gladness We in heaven shall know. H. S. Oswald, trans. by Frances E. Cox. FAR from the world, O Lord, I flee: From strife and tumult...show more
