Page 34 - twere not in joy to charm me, Were that joy unmixed with Thee. 5 Take, my soul, thy full salvation ; Rise o'er sin, and fear, and care ; Joy to find, in every station, Something still to do or bear. Think what Spirit dwells within...

I have called Thee, Abba, Father...

Page 382 - Ye are walking still through the valley of tears, But I wait to welcome you. Do I forget ? Oh, no ! For memory's golden chain Shall bind my heart to the hearts below, Till they meet and touch again. Each link is strong and bright, And love's electric flame Flows freely down, like a river of light, To the world from which I came.
