I know He has the power to aid ;
I know He has the will :
And He, who once for sinners bled,
Will rescue sinners still.
Lord, arm my soul with faith in Thee, And fill
heart with love; My path from sin and danger free,
And guide me safe above.
And while at night the waves I beat,
Lord, often thus descend, And grant me here communion sweet
With Thee, the sailor's Friend
SHE IS GONE! SHE IS GONE!
She is gone! she is gone! A God of love
She is gone! she is gone to a land of light,
She is gone! she is gone! She passed away
She is gone ! she is gone to her high reward,
She gained one peep through the golden gate;
from sorrow and sin away To dwell in the light of eternal day.
She is gone! she is gone ! And who would chain
She is gone! she is gone but a while before
CHILDREN of dew and sunshine, balmy flowers !
Ye seem like creatures of a heavenly mould That linger in this fallen earth of ours,
Fair relics of her Paradise of old.
Amidst her tombs and ruins, gentle things,
Ye smile and glitter in celestial bloom ; Like radiant feathers dropped from angel wings,
Or tiny rainbows of a world of gloom.
Yes; there is heaven about
breath And hues it dwells. The stars of heaven ye
Bright strangers in a land of sin and death,
That talk of God, and point to realms divine.
