LIFE IN CHRIST, CHRIST IN LIFEH.CG.MOULE.D.DLord Jesus Christ, grow Thou in me,And all things else recede !My heart be daily nearer Thee,From sin be daily freed.Each day let Thy supporting mightMy weakness still embrace,My darkness vanish in Thy light,Thy life my death efface.In Thy bright beams which on me fallFade every evil thought ;That I am nothing, Thou art all,I would be daily taught.Make this poor self grow less and less.Be Thou my life and aim ;Oh make me daily through Thy graceMore meet to bear Thy name !H.

LIFE IN CHRIST; CHRIST IN LIFE,Jesus, Thy life is mine !Dwell evermore in me,And let me seeThat nothing can untwineThy life from mine.F. R. Havergal.I.LIFE IN CHRIST; CHRIST IN LIFE.i.T T is a happy feature of our day that, gowhere we will, we find among Chris-tian men and women a marked and mani-fest desire for " something more." Thedesire takes very different shapes and ex- pressions, and some of them sadden rather than gladden the observer who knowsthe depth and strength of the old " faithonce delivered."

It has no necessary tendencytowards novel theories of acceptance, or of life, or of power. No, but towards a firmer grasp, a deeper-sighted and more restfulappropriation, a more buoyant and expect-ant use, of what in itself, and in " the faithof God's elect," is the same Tit. i. i.yesterday and for ever.
