Not illustrated. 1914 edition. Excerpt: ...consciousness, I am with thee. Alone with thee, amid the mystic shadows, The solemn hush of nature newly born; Alone with thee in breathless adoration, In the calm dew and freshness of the morn. Still, still with thee; as to each new-born morning A fresh and solemn splendor still is given, So doth this blessed consciousness, awaking, Breathe, each day, nearness unto thee and heaven.

Look from the height of heaven, and send to cheer us Thy light and truth, and guide us onward still; Still let thy mercy, as of old, be near us, And lead us safely to thy holy hill. Freely trans, from Grkoory Thk Great, in Hymru for the Church of Christ 1853. Softly now the light of day Fades upon my sight away: Free...show more
