mp 2 For ever on Thy burdened heart
A weight of sorrow hung,
Yet no ungentle, murmuring word
Escaped Thy silent tongue.

3 Thy foes might hate, despise, revile,
Thy friends unfaithful prove:
Unwearied in forgiveness still,

Thy heart could only love.

O give us hearts to love like Thee,
Like Thee, O Lord, to grieve
Far more for others' sins than all
The wrongs that we receive.

TOCHTER SION, 1741.

5

One with Thyself, may every eye
In us, Thy brethren, see

That gentleness and grace that spring
From union, Lord, with Thee.

Who, when He was reviled, reviled not again; when He suffered, He threatened not.'

WHAT

WHAT grace, O Lord, and beauty shone
Around Thy steps below!
What patient love was seen in all
Thy life and death of woe!

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.'

Lo

ORD, as to Thy dear cross we flee,
And plead to be forgiven,
So let Thy life our pattern be,
And form our souls for heaven.

3 Let grace our selfishness expel,
Our earthliness refine,

2 Help us, through good report and ill,
Our daily cross to bear,

Like Thee, to do our Father's will,
Our brethren's griefs to share.

mp 4 If joy shall at Thy bidding fly,
And grief's dark day come on,
We, in our turn, would meekly cry,
'Father, Thy will be done.'

And kindness in our bosoms dwell,
As free and true as Thine.

mp 5 Should friends misjudge, or foes defame,
Or brethren faithless prove,

Then, like Thine own, be all our aim
To conquer them by love.

Forgiving and forgiven,

O may we lead the pilgrim's life,
And follow Thee to heaven.

mp 2 Privations, sorrows, bitter scorn,
The life of toil, the mean abode,
The faithless kiss, the crown of thorn,-
Are these the consecrated road?

"Whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after Me, cannot be My disciple.'

H

OW shall I follow Him I serve?
How shall I copy Him I love,
Nor from those blessed footsteps swerve
Which lead me to His seat above?

[blocks in formation]

5 To faint, to grieve, to die for me

Thou camest, not Thyself to please;
And, dear as earthly comforts be,

Shall I not love Thee more than these?

G. M. GARRETT.

6 Yes! I would count them all but loss,
That I may follow after Thee;

Flesh shrinks and trembles at the cross,
But Thou canst give the victory.

2 Follow to the judgment hall;

View the Lord of Life arraigned.
O the wormwood and the gall!

O the pangs His soul sustained!
Shun not suffering, shame, or loss:
Learn of Him to bear the cross.

d

O to dark Gethsemane,

Ye that feel the tempter's power;
Your Redeemer's conflict see;

Watch with Him one bitter hour;
Turn not from His griefs away:
Learn of Jesus Christ to pray.

'Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow His steps.'
