C. M. 472
I am forever thine :
Nor would I dare to sin.
From care and business free, 'Tis sweet conversing on my bed,
With my own heart and thee. 3 I pay this evening sacrifice;
And when my work is done, Great God, my faith, my hope relies
Upon thy grace alone. 4 Thus, with my thoughts composed to peace,
I'll give mine eyes to sleep:
And will my slumbers keep.
L. M. 473
A Hymn for Morning or Evening. MY God, how endless is thy love!
Thy gifts are every evening new; And morning mercies from above
Gently distil like early dew. 2 Thou spread'st the curtains of the night,
Great Guardian of my sleeping hours ; Thy sovereign word restores the light,
Ånd quickens all my drowsy powers. 3 I yield my powers to thy command,
To thee I consecrate my days; Perpetual blessings from thy hand
Demand perpetual songs of praise.
My waking thoughts attend;
In thee my wishes end.
Thy boundless love surveys ;
A sacrifice of praise.
With his protection blest,
My weary limbs to rest.
Fears no approaching ill;
Thou, Lord, art with me still.
ASCRIPTIONS OF PRAISE.
Humble Adoration and Praise.
Hail, celestial goodness, hail!
Deign our humble songs to hear;
When around thy throne we sing. 3 While on earth ordained to stay,
Guide our footsteps in thy way,
4 Then, with angel-harps again,
We will wake a nobler strain;
Humble Adoration and Praise. GOD is goodness, wisdom, power; Love him, praise him evermore: Let us strive, and never cease,
Him in every thing to please. 2 Born for this intent we are,
Our Creator to declare;
God to honor all our days. 3 Holy, holy, holy Lord!
Live, by heaven and earth adored!
L. M. 4717
Erhortation to universal Praise.
Through every land—by every tongue. 2 Eternal are thy mercies, Lord;
Eternal truth attends thy word;
Till suns shall rise and set no more. 478
Each with a different tongue;
In every language learn his word,
And let his name be sung.
Proclaim his grace abroad:
Praise ye the faithful God. 479
Shall sound through distant lands;
Thy truth forever stands. 2 Far be thine honor spread,
And long thy praise endure,
Shall be exchanged no more. 480
BEGIN, my soul, th' exalted lay,
And praise th’ Almighty's name:
To swell th' inspiring theme. 2 Thou heaven of heavens, his vast abode, Ye clouds, proclaim your Maker God;
Ye thunders, speak his power:
Th' astonished worlds adore.
C. P. M.
His praise in softer notes declare,
And breathe it to the soul.
Harmonious anthems raise To him who shaped your finer mould, Who tipped your glittering wings with gold,
And tuned your voice to praise.
His breath in praise employ;
In songs of holy joy.
88 & 7s.
Praise him, angels in the height;
Hallelujah, Amen. 2 Praise the Lord—for he hath spoken;
Worlds his mighty voice obeyed;
Hallelujah, Amen. 3 Praise the Lord—for he is glorious;
Never shall his promise fail ;
