rest in cheerful hope, but not until they had com-
mended themselves to the protection of the Most High
in the following simple hymn :

  "When tempests rage, God !
    Do Thou my life watch over ;
  And round my frail abode
    Let Thine own angels hover ;
  That the wild waves may shrink with fear,
  Like lambs which see the lion near.

    Decree my death the rather,
  In mercy take my soul
    Into Thy hands, Father !
  From every stain of sin set free,
  Through Jesus' blood who died for me."
