THE TRUE TEST




We may not climb
the heavenly steeps
To bring the Lord Christ down;
In vain we search the lowest deeps,
For Him no depths can drown.


But warm, sweet, tender, even yet
A present help is He;
And faith has still its Olivet,
And love its Galilee.


The healing of the seamless dress
Is by our beds of pain;
We touch Him in life's
throng and press,
And we are whole again.


Through him the first
fond prayers are said
Our lips of childhood frame;
The last low whispers of our dead
Are burdened with His Name.


O Lord and Master of us all,
Whate'er our name or sign,
We own Thy sway, we hear Thy call,
We test our lives by Thine!
