[Alternative Tunes Nos. 131, 133, 179.] JESUS, Thou art with the Angels, I But Thy loving smile grew brighter, J Heavenly music Thou dost hear;
And joy filled Thy tender breast Listen to Thy children singing
Every time we fought and conquered, Now the evening draweth near.
Every time we did our best.
We have grieved Thee, gentle Saviour,
Since we came this day to school; Thou hast seen our idle tempers,
Careless work and broken rule.
Pardon us, and give us courage
Ever to be brave and true, Always at each moment thinking
What would JESUS have me do?
Bless us, LORD, and those who teach us,
On us now Thy grace outpour,
THIO Il 1000
• Small notes for verse 3.
JESUS knows good things are hard,
And from His great Throne of Light He will give a full reward,
If life's work be done åright-He will say, “My child, well done ! Enter Heaven—thy prize is won."

[Alternative Tunes Nos. 27, 139.] AND now the daily work is o'er,
No sinful word was ever known A The daily round of toil complete, To cross Thy lips, Thou Child Divine, And once again we stand, O LORD, No thought unholy ever came Before Thy gracious Mercy-seat ;
To darken that pure Heart of Thine ; Blest Saviour, teach us day by day
Blest Saviour, teach us day by day,
To hear the answers Thou didst make, Thy mother knew Thee as her GOD, And dimly guessed that here was One And yet Thou wast obediert still;
Who spake as never man yet spake;
And shed on us Thy wisdom's ray
Dear LORD, we fain would look to Thee,
What Christian childhood ought to be ;
