EXCELLENCY OF CHRIST.

EXCELLENCY OF CHRIST.
Jesus is eyes to the blind, feet to the lame, ears to the deaf, clothing to the naked, food to the hungry, medicine to the sick, and life to the dying.—Bishop Morris.
Art thou a wanderer in thick darkness here, With vision clouded by the mists of sin ?
Does earth a wilderness of gloom appear, Where rays of joy and hope are never seen ?
Come to that Lord who proffers sight to thee,
The scales shall leave thine eyes, and thou shalt see;
Shalt see thy path traced out by heavenly love,
And see the city of thy rest above.
Hast thou in worldly wisdom placed thy trust, Until thy weary, mis-led feet, must fail ?
'Till thou hast deem'd all earthly succour lost. Or proved each source of help of no avail ?
Come to the One who makes the lame rejoice;
Listen with gladness to the Saviour's voice;
Obey his precepts—strength shall then be given
To aid thy footsteps toward the Christian's heaven.
And is thy sense closed to the sounds of gladness ?
Canst thou not list the gospel promise sweet ? To thee is nature seal'd in silent sadness,
Making thy pleasures dull and incomplete?
