DEAR Redeemer, risen Lord,
That through Thy death, to my poor soul
I thank Thee, Holy Spirit,
For Thy gentle voice within,For its promptings, its reprovings, It's leadings forth from sin.
I thank Thee, Heavenly Father,
O, my Saviour, Holy Spirit,
Heavenly Father, Three in One,I thank Thee, for all Thou'rt doing, For all that thou hast done.
And I thank Thee, Holy One,
O, ever to Thy holy name
Be thanks and praises given;
For Thou art ever worthy,
Blest King of earth and heaven.
M. J. G.
JOHN X. 14.
THOU knowest, Lord, the weariness and sorrow
Blessings implored, and sins to be confessed.
Thou knowest all the past,-how long and blindly
On the dark mountains the lost wanderer strayed:
John X. 14.
How the good Shepherd followed, and how kindly
He bore it home upon His shoulder laid,
And healed the bleeding wounds, and soothed the pain, And brought back life, and hope, and strength again.
Thou knowest all the present,—each temptation,
All to myself assigned of tribulation,
Or to beloved ones than self more dear;
Thou knowest all the future, gleams of gladness
As man our mortal weakness Thou hast proved;
O Saviour, Thou hast wept and Thou hast loved;
Be of Good Cheer-Be not Afraid.
Therefore I come, Thy gentle call obeying,
BE OF GOOD CHEER-BE NOT AFRAID.
WHEN the sky is dark and low'ring,
Tossed amid the wild commotion,
Winds nor waves can thee o'erwhelm ;
What though mighty waves are rolling,
And all human help is vain?
Over all thy God doth reign.
Be of Good Cheer--Be not Afraid.
Child of God, thou'rt not forsaken ;
He doth hear and answer prayer.
"Tis in love that He doth chasten,
Soon shall end thy tribulation,
Soon shall dawn a brighter day, Rest in Christ's sweet consolation, "Lo, I'm with thee all the way."
Yes, in safety He will guide thee
Even now the coast thou'rt nearing;
Bathed in light-Emmanuel's land.
