Let sickness blast, and death devour,

If heaven shall recompense our pains; Perish the grass, and fade the flower, If firm the Word of God remains.

WHY

HYMN 206. C. M.

Isaiah xl. 27-31.

HY mournest thou, my anxious soul
Despairing of relief,

As if the Lord o'erlook'd thy cares,

Or pitied not thy grief?

2 Hast thou not known, hast thou not heard,
That firm remains on high,
The everlasting throne of Him
Who made the earth and sky?

3 Art thou afraid his power will fail
In sorrow's evil day?
Can the Creator's mighty armi
Grow weary or decay?

4 Supreme in wisdom as in power

The Rock of Ages stands;

Thou canst not search his mind, nor trace

The working of his hands.

He gives the conquest to the weak,

Supports the fainting heart; And courage in the evil hour His heavenly aids impart.

6 Mere human energy shall faint,

And youthful vigour cease;
But those who wait upon the Lord,
In strength shall still increase.

7 They, with unwearied step, shall tread
The path of life divine;
With growing ardour onward move,
With growing brightness shine.

8 On eagles' wings they mount, they soar
On wings of faith and love;

Till, past the sphere of earth and sin,
They rise to heaven above.

HYMN 207. C. M.

Isaiah lvii. 15.

THUS speaks the High and Lofty One:
My throne is fix'd on high;
There, through eternity, I hear
The praises of the sky:

2 Yet, looking down, I visit oft

The humble, hallow'd cell; And, with the penitent who mourn, 'Tis my delight to dwell

3 My presence heals the wounded heart The sad in spirit cheers;

My presence, from the bed of dust,
The contrite sinner rears.

4 I dwell with all my humble saints While they on earth remain ; And they, exalted, dwell with me, With me for ever reign.

HYMN 208. II. 1.

Habakkuk iii. 17-19.

ALTHOUGH the vine its fruit deny.

The budding fig-tree droop and die,
No oil the olive yield;

Yet will I trust me in my God,
Yea, bend rejoicing to his rod,

And by his grace be heal'd.

2 Though fields, in verdure once array'd, By whirlwinds desolate be laid,

Or parch'd by scorching beam; Still in the Lord shall be my trust, My joy; for, though his frown is just, His mercy is supreme.

3 Though from the fold the flock decay, Though herds lie famish'd o'er the lea, And round the empty stall;

My soul above the wreck shall rise,
Its better joys are in the skies;
There God is all in all.

4 In God my strength, howe'er distrest.
I yet will hope, and calmly rest,
Nay, triumph in his love:
My lingering soul, my tardy feet,
Free as the hind he makes, and fleet.
To speed my course above.

HOU art the Way, to thee alone From sin and death we flee; And he who would the Father seek, Must seek him, Lord, by thee.

2 Thou art the Truth, thy word alone True wisdom can impart;

Thou only canst inform the mind
And purify the heart.

3 Thou art the Life, the rending tomb
Proclaims thy conquering arm,
And those who put their trust in thee
Nor death nor hell shall harm.

4 Thou art the Way, the Truth, the Life Grant us that way to know,

That truth to keep, that life to win.
Whose joys eternal flow.
