IN TIME OF WAR.
TO-DAY IF YE WILL HEAR HIS VOICE!
UR God! our God! Thou shinest here;
Thine own this latter day; To us thy radiant steps appear ;
Here leads thy glorious way!
We shine not only with the light
Thou didst shed down of yore ;
Thy comings are not o'er.
The fathers had not all of thee;
New births are in thy grace; All open to our souls shall be
Thy glory's hiding-place.
We gaze on thy outgoings bright,
Down cometh thy full power ; We, the glad bearers of thy light ;
This, this thy saving hour!
On us thy spirit hast thou poured ;
To us thy word has come ;
Thou shalt not find us dumb.
Thou comest near ; thou standest by;
Our work begins to shine ;
T. H. Gill.
OLD AND NEW.
SOMETIMES gleams upon our fight,
Through present wrong, the Eternal Right! And step by step, since time began, We see the steady gain of man;
That all of good the past hath had
We lack but open eye and ear
For still the new transcends the old,
Through the harsh noises of our day
Henceforth my heart shall figh no more
7. G. Whittier.
THE DAY OF THE LORD!
'HE day of the Lord is at hand, at hand,
The storms roll up the sky;
All dreamers toss and figh.
Of the day of the Lord at hand.
