Hail the day that sees Him rise,
Ravished from our wistful eyes!
Christ, awhile to mortals given,
Re-ascends His native heaven.
There the glorious triumph waits,
Lift your heads, eternal gates!
Wide unfold the radiant scene,
Take the King of glory in!
- [Ascension Day]
One family--we dwell in Him,
One church above, beneath,
Though now divided by the stream,
The narrow stream of death.
Other refuge have I none;
Hangs my helpless soul on Thee;
Leave, ah, leave me not alone,
Still support and comfort me!
All my trust on Thee is stayed,
All my help from Thee I bring;
Cover my defenseless head
With the shadow of Thy wing.
"Christ the Lord is risen to-day,"
Sons of men and angels say.
Raise your joys and triumphs high;
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.

"Hark the herald angels sing,
Glory to the new-born king."
Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled.!
- Christmas Hymn [Christmas]
Lo! on a narrow neck of land,
'Twixt two unbounded seas, I stand.
- Hymn [Life]
My soul is all an aching void.

A charge to keep I have,
A God to glorify:
A never-dying soul to save,
And fit it for the sky.
- Hymns (318) [Soul]
Faith, mighty faith, the promise sees,
And looks to that alone;
Laughs at impossibilities,
And cries, "It shall be done!"
- Hymns (no. 360) [Faith : Success]
When summoned hence to thine eternal sleep,
Oh, may'st thou smile while all around thee weep.
- On an Infant [Tears]
See the Gospel Church secure,
And founded on a Rock!
All her promises are sure;
Her bulwarks who can shock?
Count her every precious shrine;
Tell, to after-ages tell,
Fortified by power divine,
The Church can never fail.
- Scriptural (psalm XLVIII, st. 9)
Not from his head was woman took,
As made her husband to o'erlook;
Not from his feet, as one designed
The footstool of the stronger kind;
But fashioned for himself, a bride;
An equal, taken from his side.
