33. Teach Me The Way (dated May 18, 1874,
published in Colorado Citizen, May 21, 1874)
Teach me Thy way to know;
Teach me the pure and perfect way to Thee
There is but one the Gospel light doth show,
In Christ alone, whose grace shall make us free.
One path alone, the straight and narrow one
Which leads us unto Christ, who is the door;
And lo! I come, a sinner all undone,
Coming through Christ Thy pardon to implore.
The way is dark; I fear
To venture with this weary load of sin!
O grant me strength, Father draw very near,
And by Thy Spirit bid me enter in:
And though the darkness compass me around,
Thy word, the Gospel lamp, shall light my path
That word where precious promises abound,
Speaking of peace to those who live by faith.
Jesus-the bread of life-
Oh feed us daily with Thy Heavenly grace;
Oh dwell in us, till all the bitter strife
Is past, and we with joy shall seek Thy face.
And we who search the blessed Truth to know
Can only find it Lord by seeking Thee,
For Thou art Truth, life's vanities a show;
Grant us, dear Lord, Thy blessed Truth to see.
Thou art the only way
Whereby the fallen souls of men are saved,
Oh be our Light, our Hope, our only Stay
Though in the past, Thy justice we have braved.
Father, through Christ the only way, I come,
Oh wash me white in His all cleansing blood,
And for my soul, in Paradise make room
To dwell in Thee, with all thy love imbued.

and admirers will be glad to welcome her muse
in print once again, after a silence of several
See a long, straight row of bee hives
Sheltered by the hanging trees,
When through all the long, bright Summer
Flew the heavy laden bees,
Gathering honey from the flowers
Bright within each garden bed,
And from where the gay Ratamma
Soft its yellow petals shed.
Gathering honey from the willow
Bending o'er the glassy stream,
And from where the corn's light tassels
Like a bannered army gleam;
And from many a poisoned chalice
Here’s what’s next.
