Help me the slow of heart to move By some clear winning word of love; Teach me the wayward feet to stay, And guide them in the homeward way. Teach me Thy patience; still with Thee In closer, dearer company, In work that keeps faith sweet and strong, In trust that triumphs over wrong, In hope that sends a shining ray Far down the future's broadening way; In peace that only Thou canst give, With Thee, 0 Master, let me live.

Though Satan should buffet, tho' tria l s should come, Let this blest assurance control, That Christ has regarded my helpless estate, And hath s hed His own blood for my soul. And, Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight, The clouds be rolled back as a scroll, The trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend, "Even so" it i s well with my soul.

Echo it, hilltops; proclaim it, ye plains : J esus is coming again! Coming in glory, the Lamb that was slain; Jesus is coming again! Heaveings of earth tell the vast, wonder ing throng; Jesus is coming again Tempe st and whirlwinds, the anthem prolong ; Jesus is coming again! Nations are angry by this we do know Jesus is comi ng again! Knowledge increases, men run to and fro, Jesus is coming again! "THE GOLDEN MORNING" The golden Morning is fast approaching; Jesus soon will come To take His faithful and happy c h i ldren To their promised home. 0 we see the gleams of the golden morning Piercing through this night of gloom 0 we see the gleams of the golden morning That will bust the tomb. The gospe l summons will soon be carried To the nations round The bridegroom then will cease to tarry And the trumpet sound Attended by all the shining angels Do w n the flaming sky The Judge will come and will take His people Where they will not die There those loved ones who have been parted Will all meet that day ; The tears of those who are broken hearted Will be wiped away
