PRAYER AND ASPIRATION
468
Copyright, 1905, by W. F. BlDDLK
! 2 There is a place where Jesus sheds          4 Ah, whither could we flee for aid, The oil of gladness on our heads,               *When tempted, desolate, dismayed,
I A place than all besides more sweet;           Or how the hosts of hell defeat,
It is the blood-stained mercy-seat.                Had suffering saints no mercy-seat?
I3 There is a spot where spirits blend,          5 There, there on eagle wings we soar,
Where friend holds fellowship with friend, And time and sense seem all no more, Though sundered far; by faith they meet And heaven comes down our souls to greet, Around the common mercy-seat.                  And glory crowns the mercy-seat.
Rev. Hugh Stowell, 1827
