MUSIC— OUR CROSSES BY ROBERT STUART MacARTHUR If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. Mark 8: 34. Our dearest hopes in pangs are born, The kingliest kings are crowned with throns.  — Gerald Massey. I dare not lay it down: I only ask That, taking up my daily cross I may Follow my Master, humbly, step by step. Through clouds and darkness unto perfect day. J^^nHE cross is the symbol of all the forms of suffering ^i^ which we have to bear in our Christian life. I would not ask you to go out to find a cross ; I would not ask you to bring down crosses on your head and shoulders, but I would ask you not by any cowardly, unmanly, unchristian conduct to run away from your cross.

O, beloved, take up your cross and it will be light. Do not stand beside it sighing at its weight and dreading to lift it; do not drag it like a weari- some burden after you, but lift it and God will make it light to you. Lift it up, and it will lift you up to God.

Lord, what a change within us one short hour Spent in Thy presence will avail to make — What burdens lighten, what temptations slake. What parched grounds refresh as with a shower. We kneel and all around us seems to lower, We rise and all the distant and the near Stand forth in sunny outline brave and clear We kneel, how weak, — we rise, how full of power.  — Bt. Rev. Richard Chenevix Trench. KEELIG is the most natural, the most reverent, and the most appropriate attitude in prayer. Posture is not everything, but posture is something — posture is very much. We could scarcely forgive a man who would sit while presenting himself even* to a human dignitary of whom he was asking a favor. There is authority in the Bible for praying while either standing or kneeling, but none for praying while sitting in the presence of our Mas- ter and Judge. We know that the publican prayed while standing and that his prayer was acceptable to God; but we know that Daniel knelt when he prayed. Paul prayed for the elders of the church, and later they all kneeled down on the shore and prayed. And Jesus kneeled in the
