Holy chant and psalm.
Lift on us Thy Light divine;
Breathe on us her balm.
3 Light of lights ! when falls the even,
Let it close on sin forgiven ;
Shed a holy calm.
4. Three in One and One in Three,
Dimly here we worship Thee :
Hope to bear the palm. Amen.
Thy daily stage of duty run;
3 Let all thy converse be sincere,
Thy conscience as the noonday clear;
4 Wake and lift up thyself, my heart,
And with the angels bear thy part,
5 All praise to Thee Who safe hast kept
And hast refreshed me while I slept ;
6 Lord, I my vows to Thee renew,
Disperse my sins as morning dew;
7 Direct, control, suggest this day
All I design, or do, or say ;
8 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
FORTH in Thy Name, O Lord, I go,
My daily labour to pursue,
In all I think, or speak, or do.
The task Thy wisdom hath assigned
O let me cheerfully fulfil ;
And prove Thine acceptable will.
3 Preserve me from my calling's snare,
And hide my simple heart above,
The gilded baits of worldly love.
Thee may I set at my right hand,
Whose eyes mine inmost substance see,
And offer all my works to Thee.
5 Give me to bear Thy easy yoke,
And every moment watch and pray ;
And hasten to Thy glorious day :
6 For Thee delightfully employ
Whate'er Thy bounteous grace hath given,
My voice ascending high ;
To Thee lift up mine eye.
To taste Thy mercies there ;
And worship in Thy fear.
In ways of righteousness;
1. Watts. * Morning or Evening.
Thy gifts are every evening new;
Gently distil like early dew.
Great Guardian of my sleeping hours !
And quickens all my drowsy powers ! 3 I yield my powers to Thy command ;
To Thee I consecrate my days;
[Advent. The day is past and gone;
Great God, we bow to Thee;
Unto Thy side we flee.
Ne'er sinking in the west,
Where none shall break our rest?
And joyaunce without end,
With echoing lips shall blend ?
The sheltering of Thy wing,
And love Thee, Lord, and sing.
And to the Eternal Son,
Co-equal Three in One. Amen.
[Christmas. 1 O BRIGHTNESS of the Immortal Father's
Are visibly express'd.
