Though Winter whirlwinds rage and die,
The gurgling rills go dancing by, And heavenly breezes whispering nigh,
Where darkness is but Love's refrain, And rainbows every storm defy.
ETERNITY IS HEAVEN FOR ME, WHILE I THE CROSS OF JESUS SEE!
O LORD, within my heart appear,
Bewildered now with doubt and fear, And let thy mercy still prevail Where else my trembling faith would fail! O let that mercy comfort me, And from guilt's terror set me free; Guide my despairing soul about, And drive each faithless anguish out. Save, Lord ! I perish! is my cry As on the lake Thou passest by; There let me hear Thy welcome shout, Oh thou of little faith, why doubt? Dear Lord, my trembling faith increase, And in my heart there shall be Peace, The raging tempest I deride, And in my Saviour's bosom hide. How can I fail to be supplied With all that's needful for my guide, Till Heaven, within my heart renewed, Shall show the faith by Christ pursued, And mine Eternal gratitude!
GOD'S LOVE IN THE SPIRIT OF PRAYER. 299
THE GIFT OF GOD'S LOVE IN THE
SPIRIT OF PRAYER. OH the gift of God's grace in the Spirit of
PrayerWhat boundless salvation encompasses there The soul that is winged with the Faith of the
Lord, To fly with the strength of the oath of His Word, From the Temple of Praise, where the Promise is
heard, And the crown of God's Mercy on Sinners con

God's Mercy-seat! And there are waiting
His cherubim on Wings of Light
The Holy Spirit's breathings shown
Even in the guiltiest Soul's confession ; The hope of mercy shed abroad,
The first dear faith in man's possession.
The Mercy-seat, the Court of Love,
Even at the Cross, the dying prayer.
God's Mercy-seat in Jesus' name
THE SOUL'S ADIEU TO TIME.
TIME, that hath brought us thus far on our way,
In bidding us Good-bye asks, as a friend, May God be with you to your journey's end ! Always at parting teaching us to pray,
Be with us, Lord, and give us grace to mend What paths or footsteps we have gone astray,
And with us henceforth all our steps attend,
But who to parting Time farewell can say,
If, ever careless of the Soul's welfare,
