Not illustrated. 1885 edition. Excerpt: ...peace, I 'm safe with Christ my friend! If he is nigh, Howe'er I die, 'Twill be the dawn of heavenly ecstasy. My times are in thy hand! To thee I can intrust My slumbering clay, till thy command Bids all the dead before thee stand, Awaking from the dust. Beholding thee, What bliss 't will be With all thy saints to spend eternity! To spend eternity In heaven's unclouded light! From sorrow, sin, and frailty free, Beholding and resembling thee, --O too transporting sight! Prospect too fair For flesh to bear! Haste! haste! my Lord, and soon transport me there! Christopher Newman Hall RESTING IN GOD. "Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him." Ps. xxxvii. 7. Karl Rudolph Hagenbach was bom May 4, 1801, and died at Basel, June 7, 1874. He was distinguished as a writer of catholic temper, and as a professor of Church History.

Know his love in full completeness Fills the measure of thy weakness; If he wound thy spirit sore, Trust him more. Without murmur, uncomplaining, In his hand Leave whatever things thou canst not Understand. Though the world thy folly spurneth, From thy faith in pity turneth, Peace thy inmost soul shall fill, Lying still. Like an infant, if thou thinkest Thou canst stand.

Fearest sometimes that thy Father Hath forgot? When the clouds around thee gather, Doubt him not. Always hath the daylight broken, --Always hath he comfort spoken, --Better hath he been for years Than thy fears. Therefore, whatsoe'er betideth, Night or day, --Know his love for thee provideth Good...show more
