AS WITH GOD ALONE.

WHATE'ER may come, receive from God, as good :
Towards Him, submissive be thy spirit's mood.
On God, thy life, with all its burdens, cast :
Think more of Him than self, from first to last.
Ah, Loving God, the soul that joys in Thee,
Can find with Thee delight, in misery!

THE FREEDOM OF THE CHILDREN OF

GOD.

O NOBLE Freedom his, whose soul apart doth lie
From all that is not God, in blessed, will-less rest!
Untouched by cares and sorrows, it abides on high,
Where nought can mar its shelter on The Father's

Breast.

“ WITHOUT DISSIMULATION.”

Let all thy deeds be right and true;

And never act a part :
With God Himself thou hast to do,

Who looketh on the heart.

LOOKING UNTO JESUS.

:

FORGET thyself, O sinner, and thy sins' full surging tide : Look up to Jesus—so shalt thou find mercy in His

sight! Live on for ever thus-beholding Him, and nought

beside ; Till, through that gaze transfigured, thou become a Child

of Light.

THE SELF-DRAWING LOVE.

God's Love, my living Magnet, draweth me,

With soft, yet all-resistless, inward force;
So that my spirit walketh in His

ways :
It walks, and runs; but burdens not its course
With too much action ;-lives without a will ;-
Sinks into God's Own Bosom, and is still.

a

“ THOU BEHOLDEST GOD WHEN THINE

EYES ARE CLOSED.”

Whoso his eyes to self and all things here doth close,
Beholdeth God in Light; and dwells in sure repose.

" THE SON MAKETH FREE INDEED.”

From thyself and all things

Would'st thou loosened be?
Keep in spirit close to Christ;

And He shall make thee free.

CONCLUSION.

STAY not too long amongst these flowers, my reader;

Let but their scent refresh thee on thy way : Go, through these gifts, to God Himself, The Giver ;

Till thou shalt enter Paradise for aye.

THE END.
