Aulumn's Holiest Mood
O Thou Eternal One, without; '
beginning of- years or end of days,.
| "we all do fade as a: leaf." May
we learn the lesson tile fading-?
With some of us the step is not ; M
as firm as it has been, our visiom
is not so rosy, our moming so full ' ; ' ?
of hope and gladness.
The laugh of early years is sel
dom heard and the dreams we
dreampt when care lay lightly upon .
us come back no mor;, our form is
less erect, our complexion less fair,
our eyes less bright, and our action . >
less intense. For some of us tie
fading has been very gradual. The
.early frosts have been long delayed. ,1
For others it has been more rapid
and the autumn has stopped short
in its golden promise. The strengtht, '
of manhood and the beauty of wo- .
manhood that appeared at the m'ar?
riage altar now look dim and faded . ?
in the distant past.
We thank Thee, 0 our Father,
for the fading leaf, fo^ the decay
ing at Nature. In it Thou dost t
wisely and impressively remind us
of our own decay, and aw&kenest
our souls with the . great question,
"If a man die shall he live again?"*
We bless Thee and praise Thee,
O God, that Christ has died for^sin
ners and His grace, received in peni
tence and faith, can cbang^ our whole
nature so that only the outward
man shall fade and fall ; .-the inner
man sahlf grow in strength and'
beauty from day to day and txiumpfai
in the very article of death.
Then beloved friends, let us beau
tify young life and renew old life. y
Let us come as we are to the mercy
seat and receiving Thee, O Christ, as
Thou art offered to us in the Gospels, jj
learn from Thine own lips that who
soever liveth and believeth on Thee
shall never die. Death shall have n?
more dominion over us. Thanks be
unto God for His unspeakable gift.
