Summer Bouquet with Do you ever feel downhearted or discouraged and New every morning is the love

Do you ever feel downhearted or discouraged?
Do you ever think your work is all in vain?
Do the burdens thrust upon you make you tremble,
And you fear that you shall ne’er the vict’ry gain?

Darkest night will always come before the dawning,
Silver linings shine on God’s side of the cloud;
All your journey He has promised to be with you,
Naught has come to you but what His love allowed.

God is mighty-He is able to deliver;
Faith can victor be in ev’ry trying hour;
Fear, and care, and sin, and sorrow be defeated
By our faith in God’s almighty conqu’ring pow’r.


Have faith in God, the sun will shine,
Tho’ dark the cloud may be today;
His heart hath planned your path and mine;
Have faith in God, have faith alway.

May Agnew StephensNew every morning is the love
Our wakening and uprising prove;
Through sleep and darkness safely brought,
Restored to life, and power, and thought.

New mercies, each returning day,
Hover around us while we pray;
New perils past, new sins forgiven,
New thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven.

If on our daily course our mind
Be set to hallow all we find,
New treasures still, of countless price,
God will provide for sacrifice.

Old friends, old scenes, will lovelier be,
As more of heaven in each we see;
Some softening gleam of love and prayer
Shall dawn on every cross and care.

The trivial round, the common task,
Will furnish all we ought to ask;
Room to deny ourselves, a road
To bring us daily nearer God.

Seek we no more; content with these,
Let present rapture, comfort, ease,
As heaven shall bid them, come and go:
The secret this of rest below.

Only, O Lord, in Thy dear love,
Fit us for perfect rest above;
And help us, this and every day,
To live more nearly as we pray. Amen

John Keble
