IN
N life's earnest morning,

er fal - ter- Art not Thou our stay?

A-men.

Lord, in mercy

lead us
To our springs in Thee,
Where are healing waters

Plentiful and free.

When our hope was high, Came Thy voice in summons

Not to be put by: Nor in toil nor sorrow,

Weakness nor dismay, Need we ever falter

Art not Thou our stay?

2 Teach us, Lord, Thy wisdom,

While we seek men's lore; May the mind be humbled

As we know Thee more; Let the larger vision

Bring the childlike heart, And our deeper knowledge

Holier zeal impart. 3 Should our faith be palsied

By the touch of doubt, Should our hearts grow empty,

Faithless, undevout,

4 Should Thy face be clouded

To our spirits' sight,
Speak through human kindness,

Shine through nature's light,
In the face of loved ones,

In the ties of home-
Only, gracious Father,

To Thy children come.
5 Save us, Lord, from seeking

Earth's unhallowed goals;
May our lifelong passion

Be the love of souls;
Let us live and labor,

Father, in Thy sight,
Through the grace of Jesus,
By the Spirit's might.

Ebenezer S. Oakley, 1885

GOD'S trumpet wakes the slumbering world;

Now, each man to his post! The red-cross banner is unfurled;

Who joins the glorious host?

2 He who, in fealty to the truth,

And counting all the cost,
Doth consecrate his generous youth, –

He joins the noble host.

3 He who, no anger on his tongue

Nor any idle boast,
Bears steadfast witness against wrong, -

He joins the sacred host.

4 He who with calm undaunted will

Ne'er counts the battle lost,
But, though defeated, battles still, -

He joins the faithful host.

5 He who is ready for the cross,

The cause despised loves most;
And shuns not pain or shame or loss, –
He joins the martyr host.

Samuel Longfellow, 1864

6 And when these failing lips grow dumb,

And mind and memory flee,
When Thou shalt in Thy kingdom come,
Jesus, remember me.

James Montgomery, 1825
