mp 2 For ever on Thy burdened heart
3 Thy foes might hate, despise, revile,
Thy heart could only love.
O give us hearts to love like Thee,
TOCHTER SION, 1741.
One with Thyself, may every eye
That gentleness and grace that spring
Who, when He was reviled, reviled not again; when He suffered, He threatened not.'
WHAT grace, O Lord, and beauty shone
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.'
ORD, as to Thy dear cross we flee,
3 Let grace our selfishness expel,
2 Help us, through good report and ill,
Like Thee, to do our Father's will,

mp 4 If joy shall at Thy bidding fly,
And kindness in our bosoms dwell,
mp 5 Should friends misjudge, or foes defame,
Then, like Thine own, be all our aim
m 6 Kept peaceful in the midst of strife,
O may we lead the pilgrim's life,
mp 2 Privations, sorrows, bitter scorn,
"Whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after Me, cannot be My disciple.'
OW shall I follow Him I serve?

G. M. GARRETT.
6 Yes! I would count them all but loss,
Flesh shrinks and trembles at the cross,
2 Follow to the judgment hall;
View the Lord of Life arraigned.
O the pangs His soul sustained!
O to dark Gethsemane,
Ye that feel the tempter's power;
Watch with Him one bitter hour;
'Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow His steps.'
