Advantages Of Retirement
HOW sweet in silent thought to trace
by Maria Frances Cecilia Cowper
The riches of redeeming grace!
To reckon mercies o'er and o'er,
And find them such an endless store!
Jesus! everlasting theme!
Constant source of bliss supreme!
On thy fulness let me live,
From thy finish'd work receive
Humble faith and holy fear,
Courage, joy, and love sincere;
From the chain of Sin set free,
Bound alone, O Christ, to Thee.
