yea, all such as call upon Him faithfully.- Ps. 145.

[ocr errors]

Spent in Thy presence will avail to make!
What heavy burdens from our bosoms take;
What parched grounds refresh, as with a shower!
We kneel, and all around us seems to lower;
We rise, and all the distant and the near
Stands forth in sunny outline, brave and clear!
We kneel, how weak! we rise, how full of power!
Why therefore should we do ourselves this wrong,
Or others, that we are not always strong;
That we are ever overborne with care;
That we should ever weak or heartless be,
Anxious or troubled, when with us is prayer,
And joy and strength and courage are with Thee.

-Archbishop Trench.

ORE things are wrought by prayer

Than this world dreams of
For so the whole round earth is every way
Bound by gold chains about the feet of God.
