The Gifts of ChristHas thou a sin?
Some heavy weight that feign would hinder you from running well?
To have Christ liberty
O captive soul, let go,let go, and see where Jesus will begin
Has thou a care
Then roll that care on to God
'Tis not His wish for thee to bear that load
leave it with Him, and thou wilt tread life's road As if thou walked on air
Hast thou Christ's joy?
The share the happiness He gives with those who's lives are brimming o're with human woes
His joy transcendeth all, and fuller grows
This nothing can destroy
Hast thou His peace?
Christ's peace that passeth human thought and ken
So calm, so pure and deep
'Tis only when We know such restfulness-not 'till then-All fretfulness can cease
by Katharine A.Hodge
