The enemy hath nought in me-In Jesus I have rest : Deep sunk in mine own nothingness, He makes my spirit
blest. I thank Thee, O my Father, Who Thine Open Heart
didst shew, And taught my feeble soul Thy Spirit's Presence here to
My Saviour, in Thy Faithful Hands my spirit now I lay : The pledge entrusted to Thy Care Thou wilt not cast
away. Let my last breath on Earth be nought but pure and holy
love ; And let my soul, departing hence, enter Thy Rest
O Sweet Rest of Eternity! I shall Thy Face behold, And be with Thee for ever, Lord, in blessedness un
told :There, with the glorious Angel Hosts, in adoration bow. My Father, take me Home to Thee ! mine All in All art
THE BENEDICTION UPON GOD'S PEOPLE.
(DER SEGEN UBER GOTTES VOLK.)
“The Lord bless thee, and keep thee; the Lord make His face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee ; the Lord lift up His countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.”—Numbers vi. 24, 25, 26.
FOUNTAIN of all salvation, we adore Thee,
And open fainting, weary lips to Thee: O may Thy Benediction come upon us,
From the High Place of Thy Divinity!
The Lord, The Great Creator, with us tarry,
And bless our souls and bodies, through His Might; Shielding us ever with His Strong Protection ;
Guarding us from all evil, day and night!
The Lord our Light, The Saviour, shine upon us,
And let our souls be lightened by His Face;
And that He grant us His abiding Grace !
The Lord, The Comforter, above us hover ;
And, lifting up His Countenance of Love, Stamp His Own Image on our souls for ever ;
And give us Peace, which death nor life can move !
Jehovah, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Fountain of Blessedness that ever flows ;Flow through our hearts and thoughts, and daily actions ;
And let us in Thy Blessing find repose !
“Who is among you that feareth The Lord, that obeyeth the voice of His servant ; that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? Let him trust in the Name of The Lord, and stay upon his God.”— Isaiah 1. 10.
O thou who fain God's loving Voice would'st follow
night and day ;Though dark thy path, yet think not that thy Lord is far
away! · Though shineth not the sun to thee, yet still the sun is
there. After the darkness cometh light: faint not in sad despair. Seek God alone—so is He near;--trust ever in His Name: Know that Jehovah's Word is true, and ever rests the
same. Lean upon God, and hold Him fast; then shalt thou
walk aright; And go far more securely so, than in thine own heart's
“For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee. In a little wrath I hid My Face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy upon thee.”—Isaiah liv. 7, 8.
Only a little while, a little moment, God will leave us ; And then with greater mercy shall His loving Arms
receive us. And yet, this little moment—this short time--so long
appeareth, Because my faith is feeble; and my heart the darkness
feareth. Yea, Lord, when Thou forsakest me, I stray far in the
wild ; O let Thy Mercy gather me, and save Thy helpless child ! Show Thy dear Face, which now so oft is hidden from
my path: Eternal Grace, have mercy ! ah, so bitter is Thy wrath ;
