Flow gently, sweet Afton! amang thy green braes,Flow gently, I'll sing thee a song in thy praise.My Mary's asleep by thy murmuring stream,Flow gently, sweet Afton, disturb not her dream.
Jesus lives! the same comforting, helping, instructing, loving Elder Brother, as when John leaned on His bosom, as when He lifted Peter up from the waves, as when He dried Mary's tears with His, "Thy sins are forgiven thee." Jesus lives! the same almighty Saviour, Guide, Intercessor, as when He ascended to glory with the broken fetters of sin and death in His pierced hands.abbott eliot kittredge
