4. Far, far away, the roar of passion dieth,
And loving thoughts rise calm and peacefully, And no rude storm, how fierce so c'er it flieth, Disturbs the soul that dwells, O Lord, in Thee. 5. O Rest of rests! O Peace, serene, eternal! Thou ever livest, and Thou changest never; And in the secret of Thy presence dwelleth Fullness of joy, for ever and for ever.

2. Far, far beneath, the noise of tempests
And silver waves chime ever peacefully,! And no rude storm, how fierce so e'er it flieth,

The solemn hush of nature newly born;
A fresh and solemn splendor still is given,
So doth this blessed consciousness awaking, Breathe, each day, nearness unto Thee and Heaven.

Its closing eye looks up to Thee in prayer,
Sweet the repose beneath Thy wings o'ershading,
But sweeter still, to wake and find Thee there.
6. So shall it be at last, in that bright morning,
When the soul waketh, and life's shadows flee;
Oh! in that hour, fairer than daylight dawning,
Shall rise the glorious thought-I am with Thee.
"Abide in me."
1. THAT mystic word of Thine, O Sovereign Lord!
Is all too pure, too high, too deep for me; Weary of striving, and with longing faint, I breathe it back again in prayer to Thee.
2. Abide in me-o'ershadow by Thy love,
So, when thou dwellest in a mortal soul, All heaven's own sweetness seems around it thrown.
4. The soul alone, like a neglected harp,
Grows out of tune, and needs that Hand!

My hands are weary, toiling on,
Dwell Thou within it, tune and touch the
Till every note and string shall answer
5. Abide in me: there have been moments
When I have seen Thy face and felt Thy
Then evil lost its grasp, and, passion
Owned the divine enchantment of the hour.
6. These were but seasons beautiful and rare;
1. ABIDE with me! Fast falls the eventide, The darkness deepens-Lord, with me abide!

Change and decay in all around I see;

1. COME in, thou blessed of our God,
In Jesus' name we bid thee come;
2. Those joys which earth can not afford,
3. And while we pass this vale of tears,
We'll make our joys and sorrows known; We'll share each other's hopes and fears, And count a brother's cares our own.

The sudden gloom and driving shower, The sweetest sunshine is the last;
The loveliest is the evening hour.
