Hymns For Christian Devotion by J.G. Adams

784. -- The Same.

784. 7s. & 6s. M. J. G. Adams. The Same.

1 How blest, amid all blessing
This changing world bestows,
That soul in truth possessing
Pity for others' woes;
Ready to move and lighten
The load affliction bears --
Want's face with joy to brighten,
In deed, as with its prayers.

2 Thus Christ, the Friend and Servant
Of man, depressed and poor --
With ready soul and fervent --
With patience to endure --
Lived, labored without measure
In mercy's holy name,
God's will his highest pleasure,
Our good his only fame.

3 And those who in his spirit
Would seek to live and move,
His virtue must inherit,
And labor in his love;
Labor where poor, forsaken,
And lowly, sufferers lie;
In faith and hope unshaken;
Celestial ministry!

4 God of all times and stations!
Teach us this lesson true, --
Proclaim it to all nations
In life and power anew, --
That high above all praises --
All prayers -- is that unfeigned,
Glad offering Mercy raises,
By living deeds sustained!
