Page 95 - Soon as the evening shades prevail The moon takes up the wondrous tale, And nightly to the listening earth Repeats the story of her birth ; Whilst all the stars that round her burn, And all the planets in their turn, Confirm the tidings as they roll, And spread the truth from pole to pole.
Page 116 - To you, in David's town, this day Is born, of David's line, ' The Saviour, who is Christ the Lord ; And this shall be the sign : 4 " The heavenly babe you there shall find To human view displayed, All meanly wrapped in swathing bands, And in a manger laid.

There was woman's fearless eye, Lit by her deep love's truth ; There was manhood's brow, serenely high, And the fiery heart of youth. What sought they thus afar ? Bright jewels of the mine ? The wealth of seas, the spoils of war ? They sought a faith's pure shrine ! Ay, call it holy ground, The soil where first they trod; They have left unstained what there they found — Freedom to worship God.
Page 446 - What though the spicy breezes Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle, — Though every prospect pleases, And only man is vile ? In vain with lavish kindness The gifts of God are strown : The heathen in his blindness Bows down to wood and stone. 3 Shall we, whose souls are lighted By wisdom from on high, — Shall we to men benighted The lamp of life deny ? Salvation, O salvation ! The joyful sound proclaim, Till earth's remotest nation Has learnt Messiah's name.
Page 213 - While life's dark maze I tread, And griefs around me spread, Be Thou my guide ; Bid darkness turn to day, Wipe sorrow's tears away, Nor let me ever stray From Thee aside.
Page 406 - With eternity in view. Bless thy word to young and old; Fill us with a Saviour's love; And, when life's short tale is told, May we dwell with thee above.
