3 The foxes found rest,
And the birds their nest,
In the shade of the forest tree;
But Thy couch was the sod,
O Thou Son of God,

In the deserts of Galilee:

O come to my heart, Lord Jesus, There is room in my heart for Thee.

2 We saw no glory crown His head
As childhood ripened into youth;
No angels on His errands sped,
He wrought no sign: but meekness, truth,
And duty marked each step He trod;
And love to man, and love to God.

3 Jesus, my Saviour, Master, King,
Who didst for me the burden bear,
While saints in heaven Thy glory sing,
Let me on earth Thy likeness wear:
Mine be the path Thy feet have trod;
Duty and love to man and God.
Rev. Eustace R. Conder, 1887

And guide them in the homeward way.

In work that keeps faith sweet and strong,
In trust that triumphs over wrong;
In hope that sends a shining ray
Far down the future's broadening way;
In peace that only Thou canst give,
With Thee, O Master, let me live.
Rev. Washington Gladden, 1879

2 Such was Thy truth, and such Thy zeal,
Such deference to Thy Father's will,
Such love, and meekness so Divine,
I would transcribe and make them mine.4

2 And lo, Thy touch brought life and health, Gave speech, and strength, and sight; And youth renewed and frenzy calmed

Owned Thee, the Lord of light: And now, O Lord, be near to bless,

Almighty as of yore,

In crowded street, by restless couch,
As by Gennesareth's shore.

Yet come to heal the sick man's soul,
Come, cleanse the leprous taint;
Give joy and peace where all is strife,
And strength where all is faint.

4 Be Thou our great Deliverer still,

Thou Lord of life and death;
Restore and quicken, soothe and bless

With Thine almighty breath.
To hands that work and eyes that see
Give wisdom's heavenly lore,
That whole and sick, and weak and

strong,

May praise Thee evermore.
