FATHER, Who hast kept us safe O Holy Spirit! guide us now
Along the Heavenward way,
More nearly as we pray ; Grant us to please Thee, LORD, to-day Let Thy sweet will by us be done In all we do, or think, or say.
As by the Angels round Thy Throne. Dear JESUS, once a child like us,
O Trinity of Love Divine ! Thy wayward children keep,
All praise to Thee we give, Teach us to know Thy blessed Voice, I From Thee all gifts and blessings flow, And follow as Thy sheep :
By Thee alone we live : For meek, obedient, pure like Thee,
O let our lives Thy praise express, The lambs of Thine own Fold should be. ! And fill our hearts with thankfulness !
171 ASTWICK. 188.8.131.52.8.8.
* These slurs will be required in second verse. LOLY Father, through the night
Make us pure and free from sin. I Thou hast kept us in Thy sight, | Guide us by Thy mighty power, Guarded us from hurtful things
Keep us safe in danger's hour. 'Neath the shadow of Thy wings. We come to thank Thee for our sleep,
All the day Thy Holy Eye And pray Thee still Thy Lambs to keep.
Rests on us continually,
We can serve and please Thee too, All the long bright hours of day,
By the things we say and do : In our work and in our play,
() grant that morning, noon, and night, Let Thy Spirit reign within,
We may be holy in Thy sight. Amen.
[Alternative Tune No. 169.]
Thy Holy Spirit's aid, I pray.
My faith, my fervour, LORD, increase, My thanks for night's refreshing rest,
May I Thy Presence feel, And sleep with which I have been blest.
And grant that wandering thoughts may In acts of love for Thee and Thine
cease O may I spend this day,
When at Thy Throne I kneel. Seeking to do Thy will, not mine,
Thy grace, Thy pardon, I implore, Thy precepts to obey,
Thy help and guidance evermore. Amen. 220
173 LAVANT. P.M.
JESUS, Saviour dear,
And thank Thee for the day ;
In which we peaceful slept :
And Thou art ever near,
Both when we wake or sleep ;
Thy faithful children keep
Be with us through the day ;
In all we think and say ;
Keep us from evil ways,
And Thou art ever near, etc.
Wast once as young as we ;
And true and brave like Thee.
The pattern Thou hast given ;
