Meekly beaming in my face,
May the world thine image see:
Happy only in thy love,
Poor, unfriended, or unknown,
Fix my thoughts on things above,
Stay my heart on thee alone.
2. Humble, holy, all resign'd
To thy will,—thy will be done!
Give me, Lord, the perfect mind
Of thy well-beloved Son:
Counting gain and glory loss,
May I tread the path. He trod,

Hear well-pleas'd the joyous sound,
Praise from earth and heaven re-
Lost, I now in Christ am found,

Open wide thy arms and breast,
Take the weary wanderer home.

Thy kiss forgave me all.
Still the gracious words I hear,
Words that made the Saviour mine,
“Haste, for him the robe prepare,
His be righteousness divine.”

I join the heavenly lays;
All might and majesty are thine,
And never-ceasing praise.

Thy Spirit render me his own,
And rule without control in me;
Shed in my heart thy love abroad,
And keep me in thy peace, O God.
190.* T. 79.
REJOICE, my soul, God cares for
Trust to his word assuredly, (thee,
However things may go: (sake,
Thy heavenly Father, for Christ's
While the hosts of heaven adore
We with awe fall down before
Salvation is his dearest claim ;
