2 Once again beside the cross, All my gain I count but loss; Earthly pleasures fade away;
I Clouds they are that hide my day: Hence, vain shadows, let me see
I, Jesus, crucified for me.
3 Blessed Saviour, Thine am I, Thine to live, and Thine to die; Height or depth, or earthly power, Ne'er shall hide my Saviour more: Ever shall my glory be, Only, only, only Thee.
Rev. George Duffield, 1S51
C. E. Kettle
2  His works bear witness to the might
Which fails His chosen never; And hymn His praises in the sight Of men and angels ever.
3  By day the glorious sun ascends
Heaven's arch, and tarries never— An emblem of the God who lends His light and love forever.
4  By night the borrowed moonbeams shed
A grace which faileth never; And tell us of a church, whose head Enlightens her forever.
5  And so each star however faint,
Which shines and loiters never, Reminds us of some earnest saint Whose life is bright forever.
6  So tending heavenward, Lord, may we
Soon meet Thee to part never, And all Thy matchless beauty see, And taste Thy love forever.
7  To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Whose mercy changeth never, From man and from the angel host Be praise and glory ever.
Rev. A. Eubule Evans, 1865
