FINDING GOD Horatius Bonar

FINDING GOD Horatius Bonar I stand upon the mount of God   With sunlight in my soul;I hear the storms in vales beneath,   I hear the thunders roll. But I am calm with Thee, my God,   Beneath these glorious skies;And to the height on which I stand,   N0 storms, nor clouds, can rise. O THIS is […]

Laid On Jesus

I lay my sins on Jesus,      The spotlessLamb of God;He bears them all and frees us      From the accursed load:I bring my guilt to Jesus,      To wash my crimson stainsWhite in His blood most precious,      TiIll not a stain remains. I lay my wants on Jesus;    […]

Heaven at Last

Angel voices sweetly singing, Echoes through the blue dome ringing, News of wondrous gladness bringing…       Ah, ’tis heaven at last! Now beneath us all the grieving, All the wounded spirit’s heaving, All the woe of hopes deceiving…      Ah ’tis heaven at last! Sin for ever left behind us, Earthly visions […]

He Is Near!

I know not in what watch He comes      Or at what hour He may appear,Whether at midnight or at morn,      Or in what season of the year;      I only know that He is near. The centuries have gone and come,      Dark centuries of absence drear;I dare not chide the long delay,      Nor ask when I  […]

Peace on Earth

Here Peace alighted once,      But could not find a home,To Him who brought it, earth      Could give no room. Him and His peace man would not have,      And in this Child of peaceMan saw no heavenly excellence,      No grace, no comeliness. Peace in that cradle lay,      The Prince of Peace was there;The fulness of His […]

Israel–Beloved of God

O, Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me -Isa. 44:21 Forgotten! no; tht cannot be,      All other names may pass away;But thine, My Israel, shall remain      In everlasting memory. Forgotten! no; that cannot be,      Insribed upon My palms thou art,The name I gave in days of old     Is graven still upon My heart. Forgotten! […]

THE TIME IS SHORT

              The time is short!If thou woldst work for God it must be now:If thou wouldst win the garland for thy brow,              Redeem the time.              With His rewardHe comes; He tarries not;His day is near;When men least […]

O Love of God

O love of God, how strong and true! Eternal, and yet ever new;

The Everlasting Memorial

Up and away, like the dew of the morning      That soars from the earth to its home in the sun,

The Inner Calm

Calm me, my God, and keep me calm,      While these hot breezes blow;

Divine Peace

  Peace upon peace, like wave upon wave, This the portion that I crave;

Calm

I stand upon the Mount of God      With sunlight in my soul;

Choose Thou

Thy way, not mine, O Lord!      However dark it be;

Zeal in Labour

Go, labor on; spend and be spent,      Thy joy to do the Father’s will;

Upward

Upward, where the stars are burning, Silent, silent in their turning

Hear My Cry

O strong to save and bless, My rock and righteousness

At the Lord’s Table

Here, O my Lord, I see Thee face to face;     Here would I touch and handle things unseen,

Be True

Thou must be true thyself, If thou the truth wouldst teach;

Is This All?

Sometimes I catch sweet glimpses of His face,            But that is all.

Blessed Be God, Our God

      Blessed be God, our God, Who freely His beloved Son up gave His enemies to reconcile and save:       Blessed be God, our God.       He spared not His Son: 'Tis this that bids the hard thought disappear, 'Tis this that silences each rising fear,       He spared not […]
