R2450-76 Poem: “Lo, I Am With Thee!”

::R2450 : page 76::

“LO, I AM WITH THEE!”

The “Lord of the harvest” be near thee,
To comfort, and strengthen, and aid;
His “presence” be with thee to cheer thee,
In sickness, and sorrow, and shade!

May he lead thee to heights of ambition:
To service for great and for small;
The “fire” of the Christ-life within thee,
Consuming the sacrifice all.

—J. W. WATTS.
