REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS. 325
And there three brothers, fondly dear,
In songs of harmony unite. And other friends in that fair land,
With whom my happiest hours were pass'd, Are mingling with the angel band,
Ready to welcome me at last. And best of all, my Saviour's smile
Sheds sacred brightness where they roam : 0 Father, guide my steps awhile,
Then take me to that heavenly home!
REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS.
Philippians, iv, 4.
Rejoice in the Lord at the clear hour of morning,
The morning of life, when the heart is at rest;
When the pearl-drops of beauty each spray are
And flowers in their brightest apparel are
Rejoice in the Lord at the noontide of gladness,
» When life with meridian brightness doth glow;
When thy sky is unshadow'd by sorrow or sadness,
And earth has no joy which thy heart does
Rejoice in the Lord at the still hour of even, When over the landscape the twilight comes on:
