Page 51 - O thou, by whom we come to God, The life, the truth, the way, The path of prayer thyself hast trod; Lord, teach us how to pray.
Page 115 - I forget ? Or there thy conflict see, Thine Agony and Bloody Sweat, And not remember Thee ? 4 When to the Cross I turn mine eyes, And rest on Calvary, O Lamb of God, my Sacrifice ! I must remember Thee. Remember Thee, and all thy pains, And all thy love to me ; Yea, while a breath, a pulse remains, Will I remember Thee.
Page 261 - Kings shall fall down before him, And gold and incense bring ; All nations shall adore him, His praise all people sing. For he shall have dominion O'er river, sea, and shore, Far as the eagle's pinion, Or dove's light wing can soar. 7 For him shall prayer unceasing, And daily vows ascend ; His kingdom still increasing, A kingdom without end.
Page 48 - GO to dark Gethsemane, Ye that feel the tempter's power, Your Redeemer's conflict see, Watch with him one bitter hour ; Turn not from his griefs away, Learn of Jesus Christ to pray. 2 Follow to the judgment-hall; View the Lord of life arraigned...
Page 77 - Songs of praise awoke the morn, When the Prince of Peace was born ; Songs of praise arose, when He Captive led captivity. Heaven and earth must pass away , Songs of praise shall crown that day . God will make new heavens and earth ; Songs of praise shall hail their birth.
Page 51 - Lonely, I no longer roam, Like the cloud, the wind, the wave ; Where you dwell shall be my home, Where you die shall be my grave. Mine the God whom you adore, Your Redeemer shall be mine ; Earth can fill my soul no more, Every idol I resign.
Page 48 - Calvary's mournful mountain climb, There, adoring at His feet, Mark that miracle of time, God's own Sacrifice complete. " It is finished !" hear Him cry; Learn of Jesus Christ to die.
Page xxv - Contemplative piety, or the intercourse between God and the human soul, cannot be poetical. Man admitted to implore the mercy of his Creator and plead the merits of his Redeemer is already in a higher state than poetry can confer.
Page 82 - Yonder heavens have pass'd away : Then the end ; beneath his rod, Man's last enemy shall fall ; Hallelujah ! Christ in God, God in Christ, is all in all.
Page 50 - Prayer is the burden of a sigh, The falling of a tear, The upward glancing of an eye, When none but God is near.
