Till Thou my unbelief remove,
And show me all Thy glorious love.

Sole Origin - all life, all beauty Tbine;

Thy word created all, and doth create;
Thy splendor fills all space with rays divine;
Thou art, and wert, and shalt be! Glorious!

Great !
Light-giving, life-sustaining potentate!

A hidden God indeed Thou art –

Thy absence I this moment feel ;
Yet must I own it from my heart -

Concealed, Thou art a Saviour still;
And though Thy face I cannot see,
I know Thine eye is fixed on me.

My Saviour Thou, not yet revealed;

Yet will I Thee my Saviour call, Adore Thy hand – from sin withheld

Thy hand shall save me from my fall: Now, Lord, throughout my darkness shine, And show Thyself for ever mine.

CHARLES WESLEY.

Thy chains the unmeasured universe surround

Upheld by Thee, by Thee inspired with breath!
Thou the beginning with the end hast bound,

And beautifully mingled life and death!
As sparks mount upwards from the fiery blaze,
So suns are born, so worlds spring forth from

Thee ;
And as the spangles in the sunny rays

Shine round the silver snow, the pageantry
Of heaven's bright army glitters in Thy praise.

A million torches lighted by Thy hand

Wander unwearied through the blue abyss — God.

They own Thy power, accomplish Thy command,

All gay with life, all eloquent with bliss. O THOU eternal One! whose presence bright

What shall we call them Piles of crystal light All space doth occupy, all motion guide – A glorious company of golden streamsUnchanged through time's all-devastating flight! Lamps of celestial ether burning bright -Thou only God – there is no God beside !

Suns lighting systems with their joyous beams Being above all beings! Mighty One,

But Thou to these art as the noon to night.
Whom none can comprehend and none explore !
Who fill'st existence with Thyself alone - Yes! as a drop of water in the sea,
Embracing all, supporting, ruling o'er,–

All this magnificence in Thee is lost:-
Being whom we call God, and know no more! What are ten thousand worlds compared to Thee?

And what am I then - Heaven's unnumbered In its sublime research, philosophy

host,
May measure out the ocean-deep — may count Though multiplied by myriads, and arrayed
The sands or the sun's rays — but, God! for Thee In all the glory of sublimest thought,

There is no weight nor measure; none can mount Is but an atom in the balance, weighed
Up to Thy mysteries; Reason's brightest spark, Against Thy greatness — is a cipher brought

Though kindled by Thy light, in vain would try Against infinity! What am I then 9 Naught !
To trace Thy counsels, infinite and dark;
And thought is lost ere thought can soar so Naught! But the effluence of Thy light divine,
high,

Pervading worlds, hath reached my bosom too; Even like past moments in eternity.

Yes! in my spirit doth Thy spirit shine,

As shines the sunbeam in a drop of dew. Thou from primeval nothingness didst call Naught! but I live, and on hope's pinions fly

First chaos, then existence - Lord! in Thee Eager towards Thy presence — for in Theo Eternity had its foundation; all

I live, and breathe, and dwell, aspiring high, Sprung forth from Thee - of light, joy, har- Even to the throne of Thy divinity, mony,

I am, 0 God! and surely Thou must be !
