HE Lord descended from above,
And bow'd the heavens most high; And underneath His feet He cast
The darkness of the sky.
On Cherubs and on Cherubims
Full royally he rode,
OUR TIMES. PSALM XXXI, 15.
ATHER, I know that all
life Is portioned out for me, And the changes that are sure to come,
I do not fear to see ;
But I ask Thee for a present mind
I ask Thee for a thoughtful love,
Through constant watching wise, To meet the glad with joyful smiles,
And to wipe the weeping eyes ; And a heart at leisure from itself,
To footh and sympathise.
I would not have the restless will
That hurries to and fro,
Or secret thing to know;
And guided where I go.
Wherever in the world I am,
In whatsoe'er estate,
To keep and cultivate ;
For the Lord on whom I wait.
So I ask Thee for the daily strength,
To none that ask denied, And a mind to blend with outward life
While keeping at Thy fide ; Content to fill a little space,
If Thou be glorified.
And if some things I do not ask
In my cup of blessing be, I would have my spirit filled the more
With grateful love to Thee. More careful not to serve Thee much,
But to please Thee perfectly.
There are briers besetting every path,
That call for patient care ; There's a cross in every lot,
And an earnest need for prayer ;
Is happy anywhere.
There are no bonds for me ;
That makes Thy children “ free;'
ANNA L. WARING.
HE Lord my pasture shall prepare,
And feed me with a shepherd's care ;
My noon-day walks he shall attend, And all my midnight hours defend.
When in the sultry glebe I faint,
Tho' in the paths of death I tread,
Tho' in a bare and rugged way,
OD is our refuge in distress,
Our shelter from the storm;
make, Though earth's foundations reel and shake,
We need not feel alarm.
A peaceful river softly flows
Who put their trust in God;
While oceans roll abroad.
What though the heathen madly rage,
When God sends forth His voice ;
And bids the world rejoice.
Be still and know that He is God,
And sits enthroned above;
The God of peace and love.
JAIL to the Lord's Anointed,
Great David's greater Son! Hail! in the time appointed,
His reign on earth begun!
He comes to break oppression,
And reign in equity.
To those who suffer wrong;
And bid the weak be strong;
