2  As on the river's rising tide [sea, Until the lame shall leap again
Flow strength and coolness from the And the parched lips with gladness ring.l
So through the ways our hands provide 4 Bless Thou the gifts our hands have broughl
May quickening life flow in from Thee, Bless Thou the work our hearts have plannJ
3   To heal the wound, to still the pain, Ours is the faith, the will, the thought M And strength to failing pulses bring,          The rest, O God, is in Thy hand.
Rev. Samuel Longfellow, 1886

2  And with that hast freely given
Blessings countless as the sand, To the evil and unthankful
With Thine own unsparing hand.
3   Grant us hearts, dear Lord, to yield Thee,
Gladly, freely of Thine own; With the sunshine of Thy goodness Melt our thankless hearts of stone;
4  Till our cold and selfish natures,
Warmed by Thee, at length believe That more happy and more blessed 'Tis to give than to receive.
5  Wondrous honor hast Thou given
To our humblest charity, In Thine own mysterious sentence, " Ye have done it unto Me."
6   Can it be, O gracious Master,
Thou dost deign for alms to sue, Saying, by Thy poor and needy, A " Give 'as I have given to you? 1
7  Give us faith, to trust Thee boldly,
Hope, to stay our souls on Thee: But O best of all Thy graces, Give us Thine own charity.
Mrs. E. S. Aldeeson, i?6!
