All Alone

Alas! they have left me all alone
By the receding tide;
But oh! the countless multitudes
Upon the other side!

The loved, the lost, the cherished ones,
Who dwelt with us awhile,
To scatter sunbeams on our path,
And make the desert smile.

The other side! how fair it is!
Its loveliness untold,
Its "every several gate a pearl,"
Its streets are paved with gold.

Its sun shall never more go down,
For there is no night there!
And oh! what heavenly melodies
Are floating through the air!

How sweet to join the ransomed ones
On the other side the flood,
And sing a song of praise to Him
Who washed us in His blood.

Ten thousand times ten thousand
Are hymning the new song!
O Father, join Thy weary child
To that triumphant throng!

But oh! I would be patient,
"My times are in Thy hand,"
"And glory, glory dwelleth
In Immanuel's land."

Only the wind that follows ever aft, They greet not as a stranger

Ah! know ye not in Israel A prince is fallen to-day, A just man, from the ills to come, In mercy called away! The Church is clothed in mourning, Who shall supply her loss? A standard bearer's quit the field, A soldier of the cross. On mission high and holy He braved the watery main, And many a faithful heart rejoiced To welcome him again. Thrice had the veteran warrior Nobly forsaken all,
