3 T'he cross that Jesus carried
He weareth it for you.
The hope in which ye yearn,
To him alone will turn,
The sorrows ye endure,
That death alone can cure,
Of right celestial worth?
to heaven on earth ?
Look upward to the skies,
Shall win you such a prize. 326 Who is this that cometh up from the wilderness, [8s. 6.
leaning upon her beloved ?--Song viii. 5.
The faint, the weak on thee may lean:
me, throughout life’s varying scene,
By faith to cling to thee.
Take what thou wilt, shall I repine,
My soul may cling to thee?
Here she has found a place of rest;
While she can cling to thee.
And earthly friends and joys remove,
Still would I cling to thec.
5 Oft when I seem to tread alone
Some barren waste with thorns o'ergrown,
Whispers, “Still cling to me."
I ask not, need not, aught beside :
The souls that cling to thee! 7 They fear not life's rough storms to brave,
Since thou art near and strong to save ;
Because they cling to thee. 8 Blest is my lot, whate'er befall :
What can disturb me, who appal,
Saviour, I cling to thee ? 327 Quit you like men, be strong.-1 Cor. ii. 13. [73.
1 Oft in danger, oft in woe,
Strengthen'd with the bread of life.
Join the war, and face the foe :
Know ye not your Captain's power ?
March in heavenly armour clad :
Victory soon shall tune your song.
Soon shall every tear be dry;
Great your strength, if great your need. 5 Onward then in battle move,
More than conquerors ye shall prove;
328 Be of good cheer : it is I: be not afraid.
[8s. 78. 4.
Holds the helm and guides the ship :
To the regions
Only by report is known,
And with Jesus
Led by that, the storms defy;
Waves obey him,
There the tempests cease to roar;
329 These confessed that they were strangers and [8s. 73. 4.
pilgrims on the earth.-Heb. xi. 13.
Pilgrim through this barren land;
Bread of heaven,
2 Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing stream doth flow;
Bid my anxious fears subside;
Songs of praises
330 The ark of the covenant of the Lord went [8s. 7s. 43.
before them.--Num. x. 33.
O’er the world's tempestuous sea;
All our weakness thou dost know;
Lone and dreary,
Faint and weary,
Fill our hearts with heavenly joy;
331 The Lord is my shepherd : I shall not want. [Six 8s.
Ps. xxiii. 1.
And feed me with a shepherd's care;
And all my midnight hours defend. 2 When in the sultry glebe I faint,
Or on the thirsty mountain pant,
Amid the verdant landscape flow.
With gloomy horrors overspread,
And guide me through the dreadful shade. 4 For me when spent with conflict, Lord,
Thy bounty spreads a sumptuous board;
332 The ransomed of the Lord shall come to Zion (Six 88.
with songs and everlasting joy upon their
heads.- Isa. xxxv. 10.
Of all that travel to the sky,
Who would on thee alone rely;
