Daffodils and Marbles with Oh, to be “Kept for Jesus!” and Father of mercies! In Thy word

Oh, to be “Kept for Jesus!”
Kept, by the pow’r of God;
Kept from the world unspotted,
Treading where Jesus trod.

Oh, to be “Kept for Jesus!”
Serving as He shall choose;
“Kept” for the Master’s pleasure;
“Kept” for the Master’s use.

Oh, to be “Kept for Jesus!”
Kept from the world apart;
Lowly in mind and spirit,
Gentle and pure in heart.

Oh, to be “Kept for Jesus!”
Oh, to be all His own!
Kept, to be His forever,
Kept, to be His alone!

Oh, to be “Kept for Jesus!”
Lord, at Thy feet I fall;
I would be “nothing, nothing, nothing;”
Thou shalt be “all in all.”

Edith G. Cherry

  Father of mercies, in thy word
  What endless glory shines!
Forever be thy name adored
  For these celestial lines.

  Here may the wretched sons of want
  Exhaustless riches find;
Riches above what earth can grant,
  And lasting as the mind.

  Here the fair tree of knowledge grows,
  And yields a free repast;
Sublimer sweets than nature knows
  Invite the longing taste.

  Here the Redeemer’s welcome voice
  Spreads heavenly peace around;
And life and everlasting joys
  Attend the blissful sound.

  O may these heavenly pages be
  Our ever dear delight;
And still new beauties may we see,
  And still increasing light.

 Divine Instructor, gracious Lord,
  Be thou forever near;
Teach us to love thy sacred word,
  And view the Saviour there.

    Anne Steele
