at once replied, "I have nothing on which to rest but Christ.” Thus she passed away, trusting on Christ, and on Christ alone.

“ Ten thousand times ten thousand

In sparkling raiment bright,
The armies of the ransomed saints

Throng up the steps of light.
'Tis finished-all is finished -

Their fight with Death and Sin;
Fling open wide the golden gates

And let the victors in.
Oh, then, what rapturous greetings

On Canaan's happy shore !
What knitting severed friendships up
Where partings are no more !”

A. MIERS.

SERVICE THE TRUE CHIEFSHIP. IN the best Book we have there are certain rules of life laid down that are just as good for the literary as for the moral and religious world. “The Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister. He that would be great must be a servant." If any man has special gifts, and achieves special culture of those gifts, his greatness is brought by irreversible law and Divine policy into immediate relation with the want of the world. He is to be a servant, and thus to prove his title to lordship. His true glory is only to be found in ministering. If he do not minister he has no right to honour. If he will not minister, he holds his gift unworthily and has no more reason to expect the honour of the world for what he does than he would if he did nothing. The military and administrative gifts of Washington were, undoubtedly, well known and honoured among the military and political classes, but their significance and glory were only brought out in service. He is honoured and revered, not because he served his class, but because he served his country. Those eminent gifts of his had no meaning save as they were related to the wants of his time; and their glory is that they served those wants. The glory of Watt, and Fulton, and Stephenson, and Morse, and Howe is, not that they were ingenious men, but that they placed their ingenuity in the service of the world. The honour we give to Howard and Florence Nightingale is not given to their sympathetic hearts, but to their helpful hands. - Scribner,

Poetry.

CONSECRATION.

Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated all to Thee;
Take my hands, and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love ;
Take my feet, and let them be
Swift and dutiful to Thee;
Take my voice, and let me sing
Only for my Lord the King;
Take my lips, and let them be
Filled with images from Thee;
Take my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold;

Take my moments and my days
Let them flow in ceaseless praise ;
Take my intellect and use
Every power as Thou wilt choose ;
Take my will and make it Thine!
It shall be no longer mine;
Take my heart, it is Thine own!
It shall be Thy royal throne;
Take my love—my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasured store ;
Take myself, and I will be
Ever only, Lord, for Thee.
