The Name of Mary.
ARY! Sweet name revered above,
And oh how dear below!
In it are hope and holy love,
Mary! What music in that sound,
Mary! Bright angels speak the name
And God Himself, ever the same,
Mary! To me that name recalls
The Queen who reigns above, An angel sister in Heaven's halls, And one worthy of love.
Mary! Bright star of heavenly rest!
Mother purest, Virgin ever blest,
Look down and pray for me.
In Heaven we'll know
HANK God for the faith that teaches,
If, when the journey is ended,
In Heaven we'll know our own?
And how will it be, I wonder,
Be dearest again in Heaven?
Or, think you, when we stand near
The throne of a loving Father,
That His children every one
Shall seem equally dear to each other—
Can any be like our own?
but then, no matter,
This belongs to the great "To be;"
And we'll see all these things more clearly
'Tis enough to know if we're faithful,
In the sweet by-and-by in Heaven,
We shall meet and know our own.
And bless the food which Thou hast given,
For our starved souls with that True Bread, Which Thou in mercy brought from Heaven.
Heal our sad hearts with Love Divine,
To give us strength our cross to bear,
These absent ones we miss awhile,
Into Thy sacred care we give;
May we with them in Heaven at last.
Behold in peace Thy Face and live.
MEEK and humble Lord divine,
May I be Thine, and Thou be mine;
May my proud heart grow meek like Thine!
First and Last Com
ES, I remember well the time, the place
Into our hearts full often since that day.
I know not, care not; but for THIS I care-
