Jesus on the Shore.

■■' ■ W ■ By C. E. Bolles,

Through the night of sin we journeyed, Stumbling offc beside the way, For the clouds hung thick above us, Veiling every starry ray. Then there came a voice to cheer us, One we ne'er had heard before, Lo ! the morning light was breaking — " Jesus stood upon the shore." Sorrow's wing was brooding o'er us, . And we knew not where we trod, For the tear-drops dimmed our vision As we felt the chastening rod. Then a light shone through the darkness, And we whispered o'er and o'er, i Grief departs, its reign is ended— "Jesus stands upon the shore." Want and woe were hastening toward us, Pallid phantoms, stern and grim, And we knew not how to pass them, Four our faith was growing dim. But the loving hand that led us Kindled up the flame once more, And we felt that blest assurance — "Jesus stands upon the shore." And this thought will come to cheer us, Drifting on life's ocean wide, Floating nearer, ever nearer, To the home beyond the tide, Though: the storm may sweep the waters, Till the billows loudly roar, "Peace, be still," we'll anchor safely, "Jesus stands upon the shore." Death is coming, surely coming, - And the shadows of the grave, But we need not fear its terrors, If we trust his powers to save. Lights are gleaming in the valley, Shining through the crystal door, And, in our eternal morning, " Jesus stands upon the shore." , • —Exchange.
