SS & S 293

Once more at rest, my peaceful thoughts are blending,Once more, O Lord, Thy loving smile I see;For softly now the twilight shades descendingHave closed, and left my heart alone with Thee. Still, still I hear Thy words of consolationThat gave me hope when I was sorely tried;And since that hour of hallowed meditation,Thy counsel, Lord,…

Stealing from the world away,We are come to seek Thy face;Kindly meet us, Lord, we pray;Grant us Thy reviving grace. Yonder stars that gild the skyShine with but a borrowed light;We, unless Thy light be nigh,Wander wrapt in gloomy night. Sun of Righteousness, dispelAll our darkness, doubts and fears;May Thy light within us dwellTill eternal…

Now the day is over,Night is drawing near,Shadows of the eveningSteal across the sky. Jesus, give the wearyCalm and sweet repose;With Thy tenderest blessingMay our eyelids close. Through the long night-watchesMay Thine angels spreadTheir white wings above us,Watching round each bed. When the morning wakens,Then may I arisePure, and fresh, and sinlessIn Thine holy eyes.…

SS & S 297

ABIDE with me: fast falls the eventide;The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide:When other helpers fail, and comforts flee,Help of the helpless, oh abide with me! Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day;Earth’s joy grow dim, its glorious pass away;Change and decay in all around I see;Thou, who changest not, abide with me!…

Jesus, saviour, on Thy breastI would lay me down to rest;While mine eyelids gently close,Thou wilt grant me calm repose. My Thine angels vigil keepWhile I lay me down to sleep. Lord, this wayward heart forgive,Teach me more like Thee to live;Every evil thought subdue;May Thy grace my strength renew. When the day of life…

Sun of my soul, Thou Saviour dear,It is not night if Thou be near;Oh, may no earth-born cloud arise,To hide Thee from Thy servant’s eyes! When the soft dews of kindly sleepMy wearied eyelids gently steep,Be my last thought-How sweet to restFor ever on my Saviour’s breast! If some poor wandering child of ThineHave spumed…

Pray on, pray on, believing ones,God’s promised word is sure,That they shall overcome by faithWho to the end endure;Pray on, pray on, o weary not,The cross with patience bear;And though its burdens weigh us down,The Lord will answer prayer.

“There shall be showers of blessing”:This is the promise of love;There shall be seasons refreshing,Sent from the Saviour above. Show – – ers of blessing,Showers of blessing we need;Mercy-drops round us are falling,But for the showers we plead. “There shall be showers of blessing”-Precious reviving again;O’er the hills and the valleys,Sound of abundance of rain.…
