A. E. M.

EACH passing moment claiming

The grace and strength we need,

We would be always naming

The name we love to plead.


His holy life forthshowing

Along our upward way;

His image in us growing

More life-like day by day.


Our very faces beaming

Doxologies unsung;

Our ransomed natures seeming

To heavenly music strung.


Forever o’er us streaming

The light of Jesus’ love,

In the fair distance gleaming

The pearly gates above.


Then in the kingdom bending

Before our Saviour’s feet,

Life’s dark enigmas ending

In hallelujahs sweet.


No trembling notes of sadness:

The rest of faith becomes

A rest in love and gladness,

Eternal glory won.
