2 Lonely I no longer roam,
Like the cloud, the wind, the wave;
3 Tell me not of gain or loss,
Ease, enjoyment, pomp, and power;
408 We have left all, and have fol
lowed Thee.-Mark 10, 28.
JESUS, I my cross have taken,
All to leave, and follow Thee;
Naked, poor, despised, forsaken;
2 Go, then, earthly fame and treasure,
3 Man may trouble and distress me,
4 Thus I haste from grace to glory, Armed by faith, and winged by prayer;
Heaven's eternal day before me,
Thine own hand shall guide me there. Soon shall close my earthly mission, Soon shall pass my pilgrim days, Hope shall change to glad fruition, Faith to sight, and prayer to praise.
THE CHRISTIAN LIFE:
FAITH IN GOD.
409 By grace are ye saved through
faith.-Eph. 2, 8.
1 F Where'er it is bestowed,
AITH, tis a precious grace
It boasts of a celestial birth,
And is the gift of God.
Jesus it owns as King,
And all-atoning Priest;
It claims no merit of its own,
3 On Him it safely leans
In times of deep distress;
Flies to the fountain of His blood,
4 All through the wilderness
Lord, tis Thy work alone,
And that divinely free;
Send down the Spirit of Thy Son
410 I live by the faith of the Son of
God. Gal. 2, 20.
"Y Jesus, while in mortal flesh
Still would my spirit rest on Thee,
2 By hourly faith in Thee I live,
3 On Thy dear cross I fix mine eyes,
4 Be dead, my heart, to worldly charms; Be dead to every sin;
And tell the boldest foes without,
5 My life with His connected stands,
He keeps me in His gracious arms,
411 Be not afraid, only believe.—Mark
1 MY faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary,
Now hear me while I pray,
May Thy rich grace impart
As Thou hast died for me,
While life's dark maze I tread,
Bid darkness turn to day,
From Thee aside.
When ends life's transient dream,
Blest Saviour, then in love,
O bear me safe above,
A ransomed soul!
412 The Lamb of God, which taketh away
the sin of the world.-John 1, 29. LAY my sins on Jesus,
I The spotless Lamb of God,
He bears them all and frees us
2 I lay my wants on Jesus,
My burdens and my cares,
This weary soul of mine,
Meek, loving, lowly, mild;
Amid the heavenly throng,
413 In quietness and in confidence
shall be your strength.-Isa. 30, 15.
1 BENEATH Thy wing, O God, I rest, Thy shadow safely lie,
By Thine own strength in peace possest,
2 With strong desire I here can stay
3 My place of lowly service too, Beneath that sheltering wing I see; For all the work I have to do
Is done through strengthening trust in
4 In faith and patience is repose,
414 Because I live, ye shall live alз0.—
John 14, 19.
WHEN sins and fears prevailing rise, And fainting hope almost expires, Jesus, to Thee I lift mine eyes,
To Thee I breathe my soul's desires. 2 Art Thou not mine, my living Lord? And can my hope, my comfort die, Fixed on Thine everlasting word; That word which built the earth and sky?
3 If my immortal Saviour lives,
Not death itself, that last of foes,
Fear not, little flock.-Luke 12, 32.
IN heavenly love abiding,
No change my heart shall fear,
The storm may roar without me,
