Take my love; my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure-store.
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.

THE SECRET OF A HAPPY DAY.

Just to let thy Father do

What He will ;
Just to know that He is true,

And be still.
Just to follow hour by hour

As He leadeth ;
Just to draw the moment's power

As it needeth.
Just to trust Him, this is all !

Then the day will surely be
Peaceful, whatsoe'er befall,

Bright and blessed, calm and free.

Just to trust, and yet to ask

Guidance still;
Take the training or the task

As He will.
Just to take the loss or gain,

As He sends it ;
Just to take the joy or pain,

As He lends it.
He who formed thee for His praise

Will not miss the gracious aim; So to-day and all thy days

Shall be moulded for the same.

Just to leave in His dear hand

Little things,
All we cannot understand,

All that stings.
Just to let Him take the care

Sorely pressing,
Finding all we let Him bear

Changed to blessing.

This is all! and yet the way

Marked by Him who loves thee best; Secret of a happy day,

Secret of His promised rest.

THE UNFAILING ONE,

He who hath led will lead

All through the wilderness; He who hath fed will feed;

He who hath blessed will bless; He who hath heard thy cry

Will never close His ear;
He who hath marked thy faintest sigh,

Will not forget thy tear.
He loveth always, faileth never ;
So rest on Him to-day, forever.

He who hath made thee whole

Will heal thee day by day;
He who hath spoken to thy soul

Hath many things to say ;
He who hath gently taught

Yet more will make thee know ;
He who so wondrously hath wrought

Yet greater things will show.
He loveth always, faileth never ;
So rest on Him to-day, forever.

MUSICAL PERTURBATIONS.

The laws which regulate the effect of music upon the listener are subject to many strange perturbations. Unless we admit this to be the case, and try and detect the operation of certain irregular influences, we shall be at a loss to understand why, if music really has its own planes as well as progressions of emo
