Still sink thy spirits down?
Cast off the weight—let fear depart,
And every care be .
What though thou rulest not;
et heaven, and earth, and hell,
Proclaim, God sitteth on the throne,
And ruleth all things well.

From all created things;

And learn that wisdom from above,
Whence true contentment springs.

In every trial here,

But shall not enter there.

Shall in etermity rejoice, where endless comforts slow.

And rest delay to come,

Blest be the sorrow, kind the storm,
Which drives us nearer home.

All yield to thy control :
Thy tender mercies shall illume
he midnight of the soul.

To make thy will our own;

And when the joys of sense depart,
To live by faith alone.

On wings of love mount up on high,
And leave the world and sin behind.

"THEE, Jesus, full of truth and grace,
Thee, Saviour, we adore;
Thee in affliction's furnace praise,
And magnify thy power,

We now thy guardian presence own,
And walk, unburnt, in fire.

And glory in our Guide;

Surrounded and upheld by thee,
The fiery test abide.

Till, moulded from above,

We bear the character divine,—
The stamp of perfect love.

9 While thou, Almighty Lord, art nigh,
My soul disdains to fear;
Both sin and Satan I defy, o
Still impotently near;
The earth and hell their wars may wage-
I mark their vain design :
And calmly smile to see them rage
Against a child of thine.

The unchangeable truth and love of Jesus,

I all to thee resign,
And bow before thy chast'ning rod;
Nor will I, Lord, repine.

9 Why should my heart complain,
When wisdom, truth, and love

Direct the stroke, inflict the pain,
And point to joys above!

3 How short my suff'rings here;
How needful every cross :
Away with doubt, distrust, and fear,
Nor call my gain my loss.
4 Then give, or take away,
I'll bless thy sacred Name:
Jesus to-day, and yesterday,
And ever, is the same.
