77fe fulness of God. C. M.
I Being of beings, God of love,
To thee our hearts we raise ;
Thy all-sustaining power we prove,
And gladly sing thy praise.
2 Thine, wholly thine, we pant to be;
Our sacrifice receive :
Made, and preserved, and saved by thee,
To thee ourselves we give.
3 Heavenward our every wish aspires,
For all thy mercy's store ;
The sole return thy love requires,
Is that we ask for more.
4 For more we ask ; we open then
Our hearts to embrace thy will;
Turn, and revive us, Lord, again;
With all thy fullness fill.
The thought of God.
O how the thought of God attracts
And draws the heart from earth,
And sickens it of passing shows
And dissipating mirth !
'Tis not enough to save our souls,
To shun the eternal fires;
The thought of God will rouse the heart
To moie sublime desires.
God only is the creature's home,
Though rough and strait the road;
Yet nothing less can satisfy
The love that longs for God.
4 O utter but the name of God
Down in your heart of hearts,
And see how from the world at once
All tempting light departs !
5 A trusting heart, a yearning eye,
Can win their way above;
If mountains can be moved by faith,
Is there less power in love?
Frederick IK Faber.
251 Walk in the light. C. M.
i Walk in the light! so shalt thou know
That fellowship of love,
His Spirit only can bestow
Who reigns in light above.
2 Walk in the light! and thou shalt find
Thy heart made truly his,
Who dwells in cloudless light enshrined,
In whom no darkness is.
3 Walk in the light! and thou shalt own
Thy darkness passed away,
Because that light hath on thee shone
In which is perfect day.
4 Walk in the light ! and e'en the tomb
No fearful shade shall wear;
Glory shall chase away its gloom,
For Christ hath conquered there.
5 Walk in the light! thy path shall be
Peaceful, serene, and bright;
For God, by grace, shall dwell in thee,
And God himself is light.
