OTHERS Charles D. Meigs

Lord help me to live from day to day   In such a self-forgetful way,That even when I kneel to pray   My prayer shall be for others. Help me in all the work I do  To ever be sincere and true;And know that all I do for Thee  Must needs be done for others. Let self […]

ON HIS BLINDNESS John Milton

When I consider how my light is spentEre half my days in this dark world and wide,And that one talent which is death to hideLodged with me useless, though my soul more bentTo serve therewith my Maker, and presentMy true account, lest He returning chide,“Doth God exact day-labour, light denied?”I fondly ask. But Patience, to […]

ON THEE MY HEART IS RESTING Thodore Monod

On Thee my heart is resting!       Ah, this is rest indeed! What else, Almighty Saviour,        Can a poor sinner need? Thy light is all my wisdom,        Thy love is all my stay; Our Father’s home in glory,        Draws nearer every day. My guilt is great, but greater        The mercy Thou dost […]

OH! TO BE READY

Oh! to be ready when death shall come,Oh! to be ready to hasten home!No earthward clinging, no lingering gaze,No strife at parting, no sore amaze;No chains to sever that earth hath twined,No spell to loosen that love would bind. No flitting shadows to dim the lightOf the angel-pinions winged for flight;No cloud-like phantoms to fling […]

Inspired by Psalm 65 O Thou That Hearest Prayer, I’m coming now to thee When pain so deep has left me numb, hear my silent plea When questions fill my heart and soul, and darkness hides your face             When storms are raging fierce and strong, you see me in this place O Thou That Hearest […]

One By One

One by one the sands are flowing,One by one the moments fall;Some are coming, some are going —Do not strive to grasp them all. One by one thy duties wait thee,Let thy whole strength go to each;Let no future dreams elate thee —Learn thou first what those can teach. One by one (bright gifts from […]

Oh! For the Happy Days Gone By

Oh! for the happy days gone by, When love ran smooth and free; Days when my spirit so enjoyed More than earth’s liberty! Oh! for the times when on my heart Long prayer had never palled, Times when the ready thought of God Would come when it was called! Then when I knelt to meditate, […]

Go, when the morning shineth,              Go, when the moon is bright,

O, Where Shall Rest be Found? James Montgomery

James Montgomery (1771 – 1854) O, Where shall rest be found, Rest for the weary soul?       O, Where shall rest be found,       Rest for the weary soul? ’T were vain the ocean depths to sound,       Or pierce to either pole.       The world can never give       The bliss for which we […]

O Dearest Lamb, Take Thou My Heart!

O dearest Lamb, take thou my heart! Where can such sweetness be As I have tasted in thy love, As I have found in thee?   If there’s a fervor in my soul, And fervor sure there is, Now it shall be at thy control, And but to serve thee rise.   If love, that […]
