But whene'er we lose the track,
Saviour let us learn of Thee,
Leaving all to follow Thee,
Till we dwell with Thee above,
In the fullness of Thy love.
THE DAILY PORTION.
"As thy days, so shall thy strength bo."—De xxxiii. 25.
When the deep waves of trouble roll
In heaving billows o'er thy soul,
And no bright ray of hope appears,
To soothe thy heart, and calm thy fears;
Then in this word thy anchor see,
"E'en as thy day, thy strength shall be."
When all the future seems to wear
When at the dawn of opening day,
And if around thy aged head,
Time shall its snowy honours shed;
When dim the eye, and faint the voice,
Yet in thy Saviour's love rejoice;
So shall thy spirit pass away
To realms of bright unclouded day.
'' Ho shall dwell ou high: hia place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks; bread shall be given him; his water shall be sure.
"Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty; they shall behold the land that is very far off."—Isa xxxiii. 10, 17.
Bird of Heaven ! o'er the sea,
Wheeling round in airy rings,
In the fastness of the rock Hidden from the tempest's shock, Shall thy peaceful dwelling be Wrapt in blest security. Far above the din and strife Of the busy worldling's life; Streams of living waters roll, Through thy dry and thirsty soul; While to feed thee shall be given From on high the bread of Heaven. Soon with joy thou shalt behold Zion with her streets of gold; And to Christ thy glorious king, Songs of praise for ever sing.
