L. M. 6 Lines. 600.
Morning and Evening. 1 WHEN, streaming from the eastern skies,
The morning-light salutes mine eyes,
And turn my darkness into day. 2 When each day's scenes and labors close,
And wearied nature seeks repose,
Oh ! lead me onward to the skies. 3 And, at my life's last setting sun,
My conflicts o'er, my labors done,
Ils and 5s. 601.
The New Year. 1
COME let us anew
Roll round with the year,
His adorable will
And our talents improve, By the patience of hope, and the labor of love. 2
Our life is a dream;
Glides swiftly away,
The arrow is flown-
The millenial year
Oh! that each in the day
“I have fought my way through I have finished the work which thou gav'st me to do!»
Oh ! that each, from his Lord,
* Well and faithfully done! Enter into my joy, and sit down on my throne !" 602.
The changing Seasons.
Awake, and sing thy mighty name :
Thy hand from which our being came. 2 Seasons and moons still rolling round,
In beauteous order speak thy praise ;
To thee successive honors raise. 3 To thee we raise the annual song,
To thee the grateful tribute give ;
And, midst unnumbered deaths, we live
All to thy vast, unbounded love;
And hope of nobler joys above.
Till sense and language are no more,
Through everlasting years, adore.
Our voices shall resound:
And brings the seasons round.
Our Father and our Friend !
In genial streams descend.
3 In every scene of life, thy care,
In every age, we see:
So let our praises be.
In every age, appear;
To bless the opening year.
Our wandering souls to God;
If thou wilt bless the rod. 604.
New Year :-God,our Helper. 1 OUR helper, God ! we bless thy name,
Whose love for ever is the same;
Open, and crown, and close the year. 2 Amid ten thousand snares we stand,
Supported by thy guardian hand;
Ten thousand monuments of praise. 3 Thus far thine arm has led us on;
Thus far we make thy mercy known;
New mercies shall new songs demand. 4 Our grateful souls, on Jordan's shore,
Shall raise one sacred pillar more;
C. M. New Year :-Prayer for a Blessing. 1 NOW, gracious Lord! thine arm reveal,
And make thy glory known ;
And soften hearts of stone.
May mercy set us free;
Begin and end with thee.
3 Send down thy Spirit from above,
That saints may love thee more;
Who never loved before.
In our eternal home,
And praise thee in our room. 606.
A Song for the opening Year. 1 GREAT God ! we sing that mighty hand,
By which supported still we stand;
Let mercy crown it till it close.
Still we are guarded by our God;
By his unerring counsel led.
The future-all to us unknown
And peaceful leave before thy feet, 4 In scenes exalted or depressed,
Be thou our joy-and thou our rest ;
Adored, through all our changing days. 5 When death shall close our earthly songs,
And seal, in silence, mortal tongues,
Shall keep our souls, and guard our dust. 607.
The opening Year.
To the souls assembled here;
Give new strength the race to run ;
3 Bless us all both old and young
Call forth praise from every tongue:
7s and 6s. 608.
A Winter's Day.
To our eternal home;
A journey to the tomb;
Blooming beauty lose its charms;
Enclosed in death's cold arms.
To our eternal home;
A journey to the tomb:
Health and beauty soovi above;
C. M. Dor ble. 609.
Spring of the Year 1 WHILE beauty clothes the fertile vale,
And blossoms on the spray ;
How sweet the vernal day!
'Tis nature's cheerful voice;
And woods and fields rejoice.
While showers, with blessing fraught,
And fix the roving thought!
With gratitude and love,
Each smiling field and grove.
Can bid each virtue live;
