2 “Give me a calm, a thankful heart
From every murmur free;
And make me live to thee.
My life and death attend;
And crown my journey's end.' 510.

In paths before unknown:
The strength is all his own.
We still pursue our way;
Secure in endless day.
'Tis he that works to do;
His be the glory too. 511.
Foretaste of Heaven.
At God's right hand, where Jesus reigns
O’erwhelms us on these earthly plains !
What bliss it is with Christ to reign.
When sorrow pains our hearts no more,
What heights and depths of love divine
Will there through endless ages shine' 3 This is the heaven I long to know;
For this, with patience, I would wait,
I mount to my celestial seat,
'Tis music to my ear ;
That earth and heaven might hear.
In thee doth richly meet;
No friendship half so sweet.
And shed its fragrance there, -
The cordial of its care.
With my expiring breath,
The Hope of Heaven.
To mansions in the skies,

And storms of sorrow fall,
My God, my heaven, my all !
In seas of heavenly rest,
Across my peaceful breast.

Let soul and body praise the Lord.
From him who built this earthly frame
By whom my soul forever lives.
Or, if I feel it, heals again;

Is that distant land whose bourn
Where the mourners cease to mourn,
3 Lead us thither! thou dost know
All the way; but wanderers we
And stretch out our hands to thee;
From infancy to age,
His rest at every stage.
Eternal joys to share;
While here he kneels in prayer.
There let our hearts be found;
4 Henceforth our conversation be
With Christ before the throne;
And know as we are known.
Did infant time its being draw;
