287 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness."
mf SOMETIMES a light surprises 3mf It can bring with it nothing
The Christian while he sings ;

But He will bear us through; cres It is the Lord who rises

Who gives the lilies clothing
With healing in His wings.

Will clothe His people too.
p When comforts are declining,

Beneath the spreading heavens, He grants the soul again

No creature but is fed;
cres A season of clear shining

And He who feeds the ravens
To cheer it after rain.

Will give His children bread." @ inf In holy contemplation,

4 Þ Though vine nor fig-tree neither We sweetly then pursue

Their wonted fruit shall bear, The theme of God's salvation,

Though all the field should wither, And find it ever rew.

Nor flocks nor herds be there, cres Set free from present sorrow, cres Yet, God the same abiding, We cheerfully can say

His praise shall tune my voice; mfEven let the unknown to-morrow f For, while in Him confiding, Bring with it what it may,

I cannot but rejoice. Amen.

Thou Conqueror renowned, dim But sweeter far Thy face to see, p Thou sweetness most ineffable, p And in Thy presence rest.

In whom all joys are found ! 2 mf Nor voice can sing, nor heart can frame, 2 mf When once Thou visitest the heart, Nor can the memory find

O Saviour of mankind !

Then kindles love divine. 3mf O Hope of every contrite heart, 3 f O Jesus, Light of all below, O Joy of all the meek,

Thou Fount of living fire,
To those who fall how kind Thou art ! Surpassing all the joys we know
cres How good to those who seek !

And all we can desire ; 4 mf But what to those who find ! Ah ! this 4mf May every heart confess Thy namc, Nor tongue nor pen can show;

And ever Thee adore ;
The love of Jesus, what it is cres And, seeking Thee, itself inflame
None but His loved ones know.

To seek Thee more and more. 5 f Jesus, our only joy be Thou, 5 f Thee may our tongues for ever bless ; As Thou our prize wilt be ;

Thee may we love alone; cres Jesus, be Thou our glory now cres And ever in our lives express And through eternity. Amen.
