(AFTER COMMUNION.)
4mf Too soon we rise; the symbols disappear;

The feast, though not the love, is past and gone;

The bread and wine remove, but Thou art here;
cres Nearer than ever ; still my shield and sun.
5 mf I have no help but Thine; nor do I need

Another arm save Thine to léan upon;
It is enough, my Lord, enough indeed;

My strength is in Thy might, Thy might alone.
6 mf I have no wisdom, save in Him who is

My wisdom and my teacher, bóth in one;
No wisdom can I lack while Thou art wise,

No teaching do I crave, save Thine alone.
7° Mine is the sin. (cres) but Thine the righteousness;

P Mine is the guilt, (cres) but Thine the cleansing blood;
mf Here is my robe, my refuge, and my peace-

Thy blood, Thy righteousness, O Lórd my God. 8mf But see, the pillar-cloud is rising now,

And moving onward through the désert-night;

It beckons, and I follow, for I know
cres It leads me to Thy heritage of light. Amen.

And all Thy ways of wondrous grace The sweetness of the bread of life,

Through endless years declare! The fulness of Thy love.

245 "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins."

I PWEARY of earth, and láden with my sin,

I look at heaven and long to enter in :

But there no evil thing may find a home; cres And yet I hear a voice that bids me come. 2 P So vile I am, how dáre I hope to stand

In the pure glory of that holy land

Before the whiteness of that throne appear?
cres Yet there are hands stretched out to draw me ncar.
3 p The while I fain would tréad the heavenly way,

Evil is ever with me day by day :
cres Yet on mine ears the grácious tidings fall,
f “Repent, confess, thou shalt be loosed from all."
f It is the voice of Jésus that I hear;

His are the hands stretched out to draw me near,
And His the blood that can for all atone

And set me faultless there before the throne.
5 p 'Twas He who found me on the deathly wild,

And made me heir of heaven, the Father's child,
And day by day, whereby my soul may live,

Gives me His grace of pardon, and will give.
6 mf O great Absolver, gránt my soul may wear

The lowliest garb of penitence and prayer,
cres That in the Father's courts my glorious dress

f May be the garment of Thy righteousness.
7 mf Yea, Thou wilt answer for me, righteous Lord !

Thine all the merits, mine the great reward;
# Thine the sharp thorns, (cres) and mine the golden crown;

f Mine the life won, (D) and Thine the life laid down.
8 mf Nought can I bring, dear Lórd, for all I owe:

Yet let my full heart what it can bestow;

Like Mary's gift, let my devotion prove,
cres Forgiven greatly, how I greatly love! Amen.
