HYMNS.



I. DAILY PRAYER.



jtt owing.

L.M.

NEW every morning is the love
Our wakening and uprising prove ;
Through sleep and darkness safely brought,
Eestored to life, and power, and thought.

2 New mercies, each returning day,
Hover around us while we pray ;
New perils past, new sins forgiven,

New thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven.

3 If on our daily course oui mind
Be set to hallow all we find,

New treasures still, of countless price,
God will provide for sacrifice.

4 Old friends, old scenes, will lovelier be,
As more of heaven in each we see ;
Borne softening glean] of Love and prayer

Shall dawn on every cross and care.

5 The trivial round, the common task,
Will Furnish all we Deed fco ask;



DAILY PRAYER — MORNING.



Room to deny ourselves, a road
To bring us daily nearer God.

6 Only, O Lord, in Thy dear love,
Fit us for perfect rest above;
And help us, this and every day,
To live more nearly as we pray.

PART I. L. M.

AWAKE, my soul, and with the sun
f\ Thy daily stage of duty run ;
Shake off dull sloth, and early rise
To pay thy morning sacrifice.

2 Redeem thy misspent time that's past,
And live this day as if thy last;
Improve thy talent with due care;
For the great Day thyself prepare.

3 Wake, and lift up thyself, my heart,
And with the angels bear thy part,
Who all night long, unwearied, sing
High praise to the eternal King.

PART II.

4 All praise to Thee, Who safe hast kept,
And hast refreshed me while I slept;
Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake,
I may of endless light partake.

5 Lord, I my vows to Thee renew;
Scatter my sins as morning dew;

Guard my first springs of thought and will,
And with Thyself my spirit fill.

6 Direct, control, suggest, this day,
All I design, or do, or say;

That all my powers, with all their might,
In Thy sole glory may unite.



DAILY PEAYER — MORNING.



7 Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow ;
Praise Him, all creatures here below ;
Praise Him above, angelic host ;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Grhost.

The Doxology may be sung also at the end of Part I.

P.M.

COME, my soul, thou must be waking,
Now is breaking
O'er the earth another day :
Come, to Him Who made this splendor
See thou render
All thy feeble strength can pay.

2 Pray that He may prosper ever
Each endeavor,

When thine aim is good and true ;
But that He may ever thwart thee,
And convert thee,

When thou evil would'st pursue.

3 Think that He thy ways beholdeth ;
He imfoldeth

Every fault that lurks within ;
He the hidden shame glossed over
Can discover,

And discern each deed of sin.

4 Mayest thu on life's last morrow,
Free from sorrow,

Pass away in slumber sweel :
And, released from death's dark sadness,
Rise in gladness,

Thai far brighter Sun to greet.

5 Only God's free -iris abuse not,
Lighl refuse not,



DAILY PRAYER — MORNING.



But His Spirit's voice obey ;
Thou with Him shalt dwell, beholding
Light enfolding

All things in unclouded day.



7s.



EVERY morning mercies new
Fall as fresh as morning dew;
Every morning let us pay
Tribute with the early day :
For Thy mercies, Lord, are sure;
Thy compassion doth endure.

2 Still the greatness of Thy love
Daily doth our sins remove;
Daily, far as east from west,
Lifts the burden from the breast;
Gives unbought, to those who pray,
Strength to stand in evil day.

3 Let our prayers each morn prevail,
That these gifts may never fail;
And. as we confess the sin

And the tempter's power within,
Feed us with the Bread of Life;
Fit us for our daily strife.

4 As the morning light returns,
As the sun with splendor burns,
Teach us still to turn to Thee,
Ever blessed Trinity,

With our hands our hearts to raise,
In unf ailing prayer and praise.

FRIDAY. L. M.

OJESU, crucified for man,
O Lamb, all glorious on Thy throne,
Teach Thou our wondering souls to scan
The mystery of Thy love unknown.



DAILY PRAYEE — EVENING.



2 We pray Thee, grant ns strength to take

Our daily cross whate'er it be,
And gladly for Thine own dear sake
In paths of pain to follow Thee.

3 As on our daily way we go,

Through light or shade, in calm or strife,
Oh! may we bear Thy marks below
In conquered sin and chastened life.

4 And week by week this day we ask

That holy memories of Thy cross
May sanctify each common task,
And turn to gain each earthly loss.

5 Grant us, dear Lord, our cross to bear

Till at Thy feet we lay it down,
Win through Thy blood our pardon there,
And through the cross attain the crown.

Also the following:

312 Christ, Whose glory fills the skies.
383 Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty.
(j40 My Father, for another night.

OBRIGHTNESSoftheimmortalFather'sface,
Most holy, heavenly, blest,
Lord Jesus Christ, in Whom 1 lis truth and grace
Arc visibly expressed:

2 The sun is sinking now, and one by one
The lamps of evening shine:
We hymn the eternal Father, and the Son,
Ami Holy ( 1 host divine.



DAILY PRAYEB — EVENING.



3 Worthy art Thou at all times to receive
Our hallowed praises, Lord:
O Son of God, he Thou, in Whom we live,
Through all the world adored.

7 ios.

rpHE day is gently sinking to a close,
JL Fainter and yet more faint the sunlight glows:
O Brightness of Thy Father's glory, Thou
Eternal Light of Light, be with us now:
Where Thou art present darkness cannot be;
Midnight is glorious noon, O Lord, with Thee.

2 Our changeful lives are ebbing to an end:
Onward to darkness and to death we tend:

O Conqueror of the grave, be Thou our guide,
Be Thou our light in death's dark eventide;
Then in our mortal hour will be no gloom,
No sting in death, no terror in the tomb.

3 Thou, Who in darkness walking didst appear
Upon the waves, and Thy disciples cheer,
Come, Lord, in lonesome days, when storms assail,
And earthly hopes and human succors fail:
When all is dark may we behold Thee nigh,
And hear Thy voice — "Fear not, for it is I."

4 The weary world is mouldering to decay,
Its glories wane, its pageants fade away;
In that last sunset when the stars shall fall,
May we arise awakened by Thy call,
With Thee, O Lord, forever to abide

In that blest day which has no eventide.

8 8.8.8.4.

THE radiant morn hath passed away,
And spent too soon her golden store:



DAILY PRAYER — EVENING.



The shadows of departing day
Creep on once more.

2 Our life is but a fading dawn,

Its glorious noon, how quickly past ;
Lead us, Christ, our life-work done,
Safe home at last.

3 Oh, by Thy soul-inspiring grace

Uplift our hearts to realms on high ;
Help us to look to that bright place
Beyond the sky,

4 Where light, and life, and joy, and peace

In undivided empire reign,
And thronging angels never cease
Their deathless strain ;

5 Where saints are clothed in spotless white,

And evening shadows never fall,
Where Thou, eternal Light of Light,
Art Lord of all.



7.7.7.5.



HOLY Father, cheer our way
With Thy love's perpetual ray
Grant us every closing day
Light at evening-time.

2 Holy Saviour, calin our fears
When earth's brightness disappears :

( i 1,1 lit us in our Liter years
Lighl at evening-time,

:; Holy Spirit, be Thou nigh
Winn in mortal pains we li< 1 ;
( Irani as, .-is we conic to die,
Lighl at evening-time.



DAILY PKAYEK — EVENING.



4 Holy, blessed Trinity,
Darkness is not dark to Thee :
Those Thou keepest always see
Light at evening-time.

10 6.4.6.6,

THE snn is sinking fast,
The daylight dies ;
Let love awake, and pay
Her evening sacrifice.

2 As Christ upon the cross

His head inclined,
And to His Father's hands
His parting soul resigned ;

3 So now herself my soul

Would wholly give
Into His sacred charge,
In Whom all spirits live ;

4 So now beneath His eye

Would calmly rest,
Without a wish or thought
Abiding in the breast ;

5 Save that His will be done,

Whate'er betide ;
Dead to herself, and dead
In Him to all beside.

6 Thus would I live : yet now

Not I, but He,
In all His power and love,
Henceforth alive in me.



7 One sacred Trinity,
One Lord divine,
May I be ever His,
And He forever mine.



DAILY PRAYEE — EVENING.



L.M.

UN of my soul, Thou Saviour dear,
It is not night if Thou be near ;
Oh, may no earth-born cloud arise
To hide Thee from Thy servant's eyes.



s



2 When the soft dews of kindly sleep
My weary eyelids gently steep,

Be my last thought, how sweet to rest
Forever on my Saviour's breast.

3 Abide with me from morn till eve,
For without Thee I cannot live ;
Abide with me when night is nigh,
For without Thee I dare not die.

4 If some poor wandering child of Thine
Have spurned to-day the voice divine,
Now, Lord, the gracious work begin ;
Let him no more lie down in sin.

5 Watch by the sick; enrich the poor
With blessings from Thy boundless stor< ' ;
Be every mourner's sleep to-night,

Like infant's slumbers, pure and light.

G Come near and bless us when we wake,
Ere through the world our way we take,
Till in the ocean of Thy love
We lose ourselves in heaven above.

12 10s.

ABIDE wiili me: last falls the eventide;
i V The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide:

When other helpers fail, and comforts flee,
I lelp of the helpless, oh, abide with me.

2 Swift to its close ul searching glance can scan
The very wounds that shame would hide.

7 Thy touch has still its ancient power:
No word from Thee can fruitless fall;
Hear, in this solemn evening hour,
And in Thy mercy heal us all.

12 DAILY PRAYElt — EVENING.



Upon the fragrance of the flowers
The dews of evening lie.

2 Before Thy throne, O Lord of heaven,

We kneel at close of day ;
Look on Thy children from on high,
And hear us while we pray.

3 The sorrows of Thy servants, Lord,

Oh, do not Thon despise,
But let the incense of our prayers
Before Thy mercy rise.

4 The brightness of the coming night

Upon the darkness rolls ;
With hopes of future glory chase
The shadows on our souls.

5 Slowly the rays of daylight fade :

So fade within our heart
The hopes in earthly love and joy,
That one by one depart.

6 Slowly the bright stars, one by one,

Within the heavens shine :
Give us, Lord, fresh hopes in heaven,
And trust in things divine.

7 Let peace, O Lord, Thy peace, O God,

Upon our souls descend ;
From midnight fears, and perils, Thou
Our trembling hearts defend :

8 Give us a respite from our toil ;

Calm and subdue our w r oes ;
Through the long day we labor, Lord,
Oh, s;ive us now repose.

16 P.M.

THE day is past and over :
All thanks, O Lord, to Thee !



DAILY PRAYER — EVENING. 13

I pray Thee that offenseless
The hours of dark may be.
Jesu, keep me in Thy sight,
And save me through the coming night !

2 The joys of day are over :

I lift my heart to Thee ;
And call on Thee that sinless

The hours of gloom may be.
O Jesu, make their darkness light,
And save me through the coming night !

3 The toils of day are over ;

I raise the hymn to Thee,
And ask that free from peril

The hours of fear may be :
O Jesu, keep me in Thy sight,
And guard me through the coming night.

4 Lighten mine eyes, O Saviour,

Or sleep hi deatli shall I,
And he, my wakeful tempter,

Triumphantly shall cry
"He could not make their darkness light,
Nor guard them through the hours of night."

5 Be Thou my soul's preserver,

O God! for Thou dost know
How many arc the perils

Through which I have to go.
Lover of men, oh, hear my call,
And guard and save me from them all!



17 8.7,

SAVIOUR, breathe an evening blessing,
Ere repose our spirits seal ;
Sin and want we come confessing;

Thou canst save and Thou cansl heal.



14 DAILY PKAYER — EVENING.

2 Though the night be dark and dreary,

Darkness cannot hide from Thee ;
Thou art He Who, never weary,
Watchest where Thy people be.

3 Though destruction walk around us,

Though the arrows past us fly,
Angel-guards from Thee surround us;
We are safe, if Thou art nigh.

4 Be Thou nigh, should death o'ertake us;

Jesu then our refuge be,
And in Paradise awake us,

There to rest in peace with Thee.

5 Father, to Thy holy keeping

Humbly we ourselves resign ;
Saviour, Who hast slept our sleeping,
Make our slumbers pure as Thine;

6 Blessed Spirit, brooding o'er us,

Chase the darkness of our night,
Till the perfect day before us
Breaks in everlasting light.

18 L.M.

A LL praise to Thee, my God, this night,
JlA_ For all the blessings of the light ;
Keep me, oh, keep me, King of kings,
Beneath Thine own almighty wings.

2 Forgive me, Lord, for Thy dear Son,
The ill that I this day have done;
That with the world, myself, and Thee,
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.

3 Teach me to live, that I may dread
The grave as little as my bed;
Teach me to die, that so I may
Rise glorious at the awful day.



DAILY PEAYEE — EVENING. 15

4 Oh, may my soul on Thee repose,

And may sweet sleep mine eyelids close ;
Sleep that shall me more vigorous make
To serve my God when I awake.

5 When in the night I sleepless He,

My soul with heavenly thoughts supply;
Let no ill dreams disturb my rest,
No powers of darkness me molest.

C Oh, when shall I, in endless day,
Forever chase dark sleep away,
And hymns divine with angels sing,



All praise to Thee, eternal Kin

7 Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, angelic host :
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
