For Miss N. M. and Mr. J. H. B.

May He whose gracious presence

And wonder-working power

In Cana blessed a marriage-feast,

Bless this glad, holy hour.

Now while your both your’re plighting,–

Though none His form may see,–

May He stand close beside you

Approving tenderly.

+++++

As hand in hand you journey

Along life’s rugged way,

May He e’er walk before you

To be your guide each day.

May your house be a shadow

Of that in heav’n above;

Wrought in its every fibre,

Be the golden thread of love.

+++++

When snows of many winters

Have silvered all your hair,

And visions of the pearly gates

Appear most wondrous fair,

May you, like tired children,

Sleep through the long dark night,

With morn awake in heaven,

At home in realms of light.

I am Thy temple, Lord,

Thy word declares it so;

O deign that temple now to fill,

With Thine own, radiant glow.

+++++

My life is hid in Thee,

Thy life through me let shine,

Till every moment, every act,

Is filled with light divine.

+++++

When thus my days below

Have their full number run,

Thy undimmed glory may I see

In realms beyond the sun.

Morning Star and sunrise,

A summons clarion clear!

Oh, may I answer gladly,

Without one coward fear.

+++++

For no storm-lashed breakers,

No waves with angry crest,

Roll twixt me and the haven,

Where weary feet may rest.

+++++

Only a narrow streamlet,

With darkling ripples clear,–

One step will take me o’er it,

When I God’s call shall hear.

+++++

Morning Star and sunrise,

And then the glorious day;

And rest and endless rapture

With tears all wiped away.
