Beloved, let us love: for they who love,
They only, are His sons, born from above.

3
Beloved, let us love: for love is rest,
And he who loveth not abides unblest.

4
Beloved, let us love: for love is light,
And he who loveth not dwelleth in night

5
Beloved, let us love: for only thus
Shall we behold that God who loveth us. Amen.

HORATIUS BONAR

Thou Didst Leave Thy Throne

3
Thou cam'st, O Lord, with the living Word

That should set Thy people free;
But with mocking scorn, and with crown of thorn,

They bore Thee to Calvary.
O come to my heart, Lord Jesus,
There is room in my heart for Thee!

4
When heaven's arches shall ring and her choir shall sing

At Thy coming to victory,
Let Thy voice call me home, saying, “Yet there is room,

There is room at My side for thee!”
O come to my heart, Lord Jesus,
There is room in my heart for Thee! Amen.

3 o Jesus, Thou art pleading

In accents meek and low, “I died for you, My children

And will ye treat Me so ?”
O Lord, with shame and sorrow

We open now the door:
Dear Saviour, enter, enter,
And leave us nevermore. Amen.

At the blest mercy-seat,

Pleading for me,
My feeble faith looks up,

Jesus, to Thee:
Help me the cross to bear,
Thy wondrous love declare,
Some song to raise, or prayer,-

Something for Thee!

Some work of love begun,
Some deed of kindness done,
Some wanderer sought and won,-

Something for Thee !

3 Give me a faithful heart,

Likeness to Thee, That each departing day

Henceforth may see

All that I am and have,

Thy gifts so free,
In joy, in grief, through life,

Dear Lord, for Thee!
And when Thy face I see,
My ransomed soul shall be,
Through all eternity,

Something for Thee! Amen.

SYLVANUS DRYDEN PHELPS
