of Forty Days, what better blessing can we ask than
that, in patient expectation they may live in the
patient Master's company, serve in His service, and
rest and feast with Him when they go no more out ?

" 'Abide with us, O Lord, our hearts' desire,

For shadows gather round earths evening hour ' : —
Such voice, methiulcs, goes up from Minster tower,
From village steeple and from city spire,
Loud-clashing belfry, and harmonious choir.
To Heaven they speak with an appealing power,
Our myriad churches, shining with the dower



EASTER EVEIT. 319

Of art's adornments and devotion's fire.
* Abide witli us'— unceasingly they cry —

• As tlirongli the ages past ! The world grows^old ;

The love of many waxes faint and cold ;
But still we lift our faithful hands on high,
And feeling after Thee athwart the sky,

Upon Thy clouded Hand would fain lay hold ! ' "

l~\ GOD, by whose command the order of all time runs its
course, forgive, we beseech Thee, the impatience of our
unbelief, make perfect that which is lacking in our faith, grant
T28 a steady continuance in works of charity, and, while we
tarry the fulfilment of Thy ancient j)romises, grant us to have
a good hope because of Thy sure word and Thy risen and ever-
living Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
