PRAYER AND ASPIRATION
485
2 Upon the willows long
My harp has silent hung: How should I sing a cheerful song Till Thou inspire my tongue?
4 To thee, to thee I press,
A dark and toilsome road: When shall I pass the wilderness, And reach the saints' abode?
3 My spirit homeward turns,
And fain would thither flee: My heart, O Zion, droops and yearns When I remember thee.
5 God of my life, be near;
On Thee my hopes I cast: O guide me through the desert here, And bring me home at last.
Rev. Henry F. Lyte, 1834

2  The world can never give
The bliss for which we sigh; 'Tis not the whole of life to live, Nor all of death to die.
3  Beyond this vale of tears
There is a life above, Unmeasured by the flight of years; And all that life is love.
4  There is a death, whose pang
Outlasts the fleeting breath:
0 what eternal horrors hang
Around the second death.

5  Lord God of truth and grace,
Teach us that death to shun, Lest we be banished from Thy face, And evermore undone.
James Montgomery, 1819J
