The feast, though not the love, is past and gone;
The bread and wine remove, but Thou art here;
Another arm save Thine to léan upon;
My strength is in Thy might, Thy might alone.
My wisdom and my teacher, bóth in one;
No teaching do I crave, save Thine alone.

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

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?

His are the hands stretched out to draw me near,
And set me faultless there before the throne.
And made me heir of heaven, the Father's child,
Gives me His grace of pardon, and will give.
The lowliest garb of penitence and prayer,

Thine all the merits, mine the great reward;
f Mine the life won, (D) and Thine the life laid down.
Yet let my full heart what it can bestow;
Like Mary's gift, let my devotion prove,
