which rais'd us with a Word; And ev'ry Day and ey'ry Hour
we lean upon the Lord. 3 The Ev’ning reits our weary Head,
and Angels guard the Room; We wake and we admire the Bed,
which was not made our Tomb. 4 The rising Morning can't affure
that we shall end the Day; For Death ftands ready at the Door
to make our Lives his Prey.

our Joy and Safety brings; Our feeble Frames lie fate at Night, beneath his guardian Wings.

And these rejoicing Eyes.

Her dark Domains confin'd.
And ’midst their Shouts the God ascends. 3 All hail, triumphani Lord,
Heav'n wi.h Hosannas rings;

Through endless Years to live and reign. 4 Gird on, O God, thy Sword,
Ascend thy conqu’ring Carr,
And Sin and Hell in Triumph lead, 5 Make bare thy potent Arm,
And wing th' unerring Dart
To each rebellious Heart.

And fix our Thoughts on Things divine. 3 The Word of Life dispens'd to-day,
Invites us to a heav'nly Feast;
On foul-reviving Dainties feed!
O may thy Word with Life divine,

RISE betimes and praise the Lord;
Be all Attention to his Word;
Deny myself; for Death prepare.
For Friends and Foes breathe ardent Love;
Hate and for fake my fav'rite Faults.

Quell fland'rous Talk as soon as heard.
Speak gracious Words with pious Fear;
Use it for Strength in heav'nly Ways.
