6 Lord, I my vows to thee renew;
Scatter 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;
Thomas Ken, 1695, rev. 1709
18.104.22.168.4.7 NOME, my soul, thou must be waking.
Now is breaking
All thy feeble strength can pay.
2 Gladly hail the sun returning,
Be the incense of thy powers;
With his care thy helpless hours.
3 Pray that he may prosper ever
When thine aim is good and true;
4 Think that he thy ways beholdeth; He unfoldeth
Every fault that lurks within; He the hidden shame glossed over Can discover,
And discern each deed of sin.
6 Mayest thou on life's last morrow, Free from sorrow,
Pass away in slumber sweet; And, released from death's dark sadness, Rise in gladness
That far brighter Sun to greet.
6 Only God's free gifts abuse not,
But his Spirit's voice obey;
All things in unclouded day.
Six 7's C (HRIST, whose glory fills the skies,
Christ, the true, the only Light, Sun of Righteousness, arise!
Triumph o'er the shades of night: Day-spring from on high, be near; Day-star, in my heart appear.
2 Dark and cheerless is the morn
Unaccompanied by thee;
Till thy mercy's beams I see;
3 Visit then this soul of mine!
Pierce the gloom of sin and grief!
Scatter all my unbelief;
Charles Wesley, 1740
C.M. COW that the sun is gleaming bright,
That he, the uncreated Light,
May guide us as we go.
Nor thoughts that idly rove,
And in our hearts be love.
3 And while the hours in order flow,
O Christ, securely fence
The gate of every sense.
4 And grant that to thine honour, Lord,
Our daily toil may tend;
Latin; Tr. John Henry Newman, 1836-1838
Y Father, for another night
Of quiet sleep and rest,
Thy holy Name be blest.
2 Now with the newborn day I give
Myself anew to thee,
And what thou willest be.
3 Whate'er I do, things great or small,
Whate’er I speak or frame,
Do all in Jesus' Name.
4 My Father, for his sake, I pray
Thy child accept and bless;
Henry W. Baker, 1876
L.M. NORTH in thy Name, O Lord, I go
My daily labour to pursue; Thee, only thee, resolved to know,
In all I think, or speak, or do.
2 The task thy wisdom hath assigned,
O let me cheerfully fulfill;
And prove thy good and perfect will.
3 Thee may I set at my right hand,
Whose eyes my inmost substance see; And labour on at thy command,
And offer all my works to thee.
4 Give me to bear thy easy yoke,
And every moment watch and pray; And still to things eternal look,
And hasten to thy glorious Day.
5 Fain would I still for thee employ
Whate'er thy bounteous grace hath given, Would run my course with even joy, And closely walk with thee to heaven.
Charles Wesley, 1749
L.M. Co YOME, Holy Ghost, who ever One
Art with the Father and the Son; Come, Holy Ghost, our souls possess With thy full flood of holiness.

With all our powers, thy praise be sung;

Through Jesus Christ our Lord most high, Who with the Holy Ghost and thee Doth live and reign eternally. Amen. Latin; St. Ambrose, 340–397; Tr. John Henry Newman, 1836
Also the following 205 Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty
L.M. LEST are the moments, doubly blest,
That drawn from this one hour of rest, Are with a ready heart bestowed Upon the service of our God!
