Sida 122 - So I go on, not knowing ; I would not if I might ; I would rather walk in the dark with God, Than go alone in the light ; I would rather walk with Him by faith, Than walk alone by sight.
Sida 111 - Unanswered yet the prayer your lips have pleaded In agony of heart these many years? Does faith begin to fail? Is hope departing? And think you all in vain those falling tears? Say not the Father hath not heard your prayer; You shall have your desire sometime, somewhere.
Sida 21 - LORD ! for to-morrow and its needs I do not pray ; Keep me, my GOD, from stain of sin, Just for to-day. Let me both diligently work And duly pray ; Let me be kind in word and deed, Just for to-day. Let me be slow to do my will, Prompt to obey ; Help me to mortify my flesh, Just for to-day.
Sida 31 - The camel at the close of day Kneels down upon the sandy plain, To have his burden lifted off, And rest to gain. My soul, thou, too, shouldst to thy knees, When daylight draweth to a close, And let thy Master lift the load And grant repose. Else how...
Sida 108 - If we knew the cares and trials, Knew the efforts, all in vain, And the bitter disappointment, Understood the loss and gain — Would the grim eternal roughness Seem — I wonder — just the same? Should we help where now we hinder, Should we pity where we blame? Ah! we judge each other harshly, Knowing not life's hidden force — Knowing not the fount of action Is less turbid at its source; Seeing not amid the evil All the golden grains of good; And we'd love each other better If we only understood.
Sida 136 - Yet the hearts of children Hold what worlds cannot, And the God of wonders Loves the lowly spot.
Sida 44 - Ah dearest Lord ! I cannot pray, My fancy is not free ; Unmannerly distractions come, And force my thoughts from Thee. The world that looks so dull all day Glows bright on me at prayer, And plans that ask no thought but then Wake up and meet me there.
Sida 90 - I know thy burden, child. I shaped it; Poised it in Mine Own hand; made no proportion In its weight to thine unaided strength, For even as I laid it on, I said, 'I shall be near, and while she leans on Me, This burden shall be Mine, not hers; So shall I keep My child within the circling arms Of My Own love.
Sida 108 - If we knew the cares and trials, Knew the efforts all in vain, And the bitter disappointment, Understood the loss and gain, Would the grim, external roughness Seem, I wonder, just the same? Should we help where now we hinder, Should we pity where we blame? "Ah, we judge each other harshly, Knowing not life's hidden force, Knowing not the fount of action . is less turbid at its source. Seeing not amid the evil All the golden grains of good, Oh, we'd love each other better, If we only understood.
Sida 137 - Multiply our graces, Chiefly love and fear, And, dear Lord ! the chiefest— Grace to persevere. Oh, how can we thank Thee For a gift like this — Gift that truly maketh Heaven's eternal bliss ! Ah ! when wilt Thou always Make our hearts Thy home ! We must wait for Heaven, — Then the day will come.
