In whom the Fa-ther's glo-ries shine,Through earth beneath and heav'n a bove.
Patient Thankfulness and Trust. L. M.
I Eternal Beam of light divine,
Fountain of unexhausted love,
In whom the Father's glories shine,
Through earth beneath, and heaven above;
2 Jesus, the weary wanderer's rest,
Give me thy easy yoke to bear;
With steadfast patience arm my breast,
With spotless love and lowly fear.
3 Thankful I take the cup from thee,
Prepared and mingled by thy skill;
Though bitter to the taste it be,
Powerful the wounded soul to heal.
4 Be thou, O Rock of ages, nigh!
So shall each murmuring thought be gone,
And grief, and fear, and care shall fly,
As clouds before the midday sun.
5 Speak to my warring passions, " Peace;"
Say to my trembling heart, " Be still;"
Thy power my strength and fojtress is,
For all things serve thy sovereign will.
6 O Death! where is thy sting ? Where now
Thy boasted victory, O Grave?
Who shall contend with God ? or who
Can hurt whom God delights to save ?
335 In hope, believing against hope. L. M.
i Away, my unbelieving fear!
Fear shall in me no more have place;
My Saviour doth not yet appear,
He hides the brightness of his face;,
2 But shall I therefore let him go,
And basely to the tempter yield ?
No, in the strength of Jesus no,
I never will give up my shield..
3 Although the vine its fruits deny,
Although the olives yield no oil,
The withering fig-trees droop and die,.
The fields elude the tiller's toil,
4 The empty stall no herd afford,
And perish all the bleating raee,
Yet will I triumph in the Lord,—
The God of my salvation praise.
5 In hope believing against hope,
Jesus, my Lord, my God, I claim;
Jesus my strength shall lift me up,
Salvation is in Jesus' name;
6 To me he soon shall bring it nigh,
My soul shall then outstrip the wind,
On wings of love mount up on high,
And leave the world and sin behind.
