2 Still heavy is thy heart!
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.
3 The Lord, who built the earth and sky,
In mercy stoops to hear th y cry;
His promise all may freely claim :
and receive in Jesus' name.
4 Thus shall the soul be truly blest,
That seeks in God his only rest;
May I that happy person be,
In time and in etermity. -
2 o that my heart might dwell aloof
From all created things;
And learn that wisdom from above,
Whence true contentment springs.
3 Courage, my soul; thy bitter cross,
In every trial here,
Shail bear thee to thy heaven above,
But shall not enter there.
4 The sighing ones, that humbly seek In sorrowing paths below,
Shall in etermity rejoice, where endless comforts slow.
6 Courage, my soul; on God rely;
Deliv'rance soon will come;
A thousand ways has Providence
To bring believers home.
2. But should the surges rise,
And rest delay to come,
Blest be the sorrow, kind the storm,
Which drives us nearer home.
3 Soon shall our doubts and fears
All yield to thy control :
Thy tender mercies shall illume
he midnight of the soul.
4 Teach us, in every state,
To make thy will our own;
And when the joys of sense depart,
To live by faith alone.
8 on hope, believing against hope,
Jesus, my Lord, my God, 1 claim;
Jesus, my strength, shall fist me up;
Salvation is in jesus name.
To me he soon shall bring it nigh;
My soul shall then outstrip the wind;
On wings of love mount up on high,
And leave the world and sin behind.
Casting all your care upon Him.
ST; on the Lord thy burden roll,
}}. Nor let a care remain;
His mighty arm shall bear thy soul,
Alid all thy griefs sustain.
2 Ne'er will the Lord his aid deny
To those who trust his love;
And they who on his grace rely,
Shall sing his praise above.
"THEE, Jesus, full of truth and grace,
Thee, Saviour, we adore;
Thee in affliction's furnace praise,
And magnify thy power,
° Thy power, in human weakness shown, Skall make us all entire;
We now thy guardian presence own,
And walk, unburnt, in fire.
3 Thee, Son of man, by faithwa see,
And glory in our Guide;
Surrounded and upheld by thee,
The fiery test abide.
4 The fire our graces shall refine,
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,
UBMISSIVELY, my God,
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.
