Page 48 - DEFEND, O Lord, this thy child [or this thy servant] with thy heavenly grace, that he may continue thine for ever; and daily increase in thy Holy Spirit, more and more, until he come unto thy everlasting kingdom.
Page 3 - LEAD, Kindly Light, amid the encircling gloom, Lead Thou me on! The night is dark, and I am far from home! Lead Thou me on. Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see The distant scene — one step enough for me. I was not ever thus, nor prayed that Thou Shouldst lead me on. I loved to choose and see my path, but now Lead Thou me on!
Page 14 - Sweet nurslings of the vernal skies, Bathed in soft airs, and fed with dew, What more than magic in you lies, To fill the heart's fond view?

Page 40 - LORD my God, do Thou Thy holy will— I will lie still — I will not stir, lest I forsake Thine arm, And break the charm, Which lulls me, clinging to my Father's breast, In perfect rest.
Page 44 - O'er leaf and wave ; A calm undressing, all so silently, For calmness of the grave, Unrepining. 'Tis thus when, all its wanderings past, On the still tide The bark doth hang its idle sail at last, And like a shadow glide Into its rest. The noiseless brook its banks along Winds like a lake, Save stilly heard a rippling under-song, Whose passing eddies make Silence more still. Upon the dread and...
Page 29 - O bounteous Love of GOD ! O range immense Of mercy free, and prompt munificence ! To Thee devotion hies and memory steals, And the lone heart its bitterness reveals ; To Thee, O...
