OD of my life, with grateful heart,
My ev'ning song I raise ;
Exceed my highest praise.
Which me this day has kept ?
And that Thou wilt accept.
I may this day have done,
For pardon through Thy Son.
10 HEAR me, O God, when near Thy throne
My earnest cries ascend;
And on Thy grace depend.
Distress'd with anxious care :
Again regard my prayer : 3 When night's dark shades are round me spread,
My ways I would rehearse,
And with my heart converse :
To sleep, my weary eyes:
11 GLORY to Thee, my God, this night,
For all the blessings of the light !
2 Forgive me, Lord, for Thy dear Son,
The ill that I this day have done ;
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be. 3 Teach me to live that I
dread The grave as little as my bed ; Teach me to die that so I
may Rise glorious at the awful day.
4 O may my soul on Thee repose,
And may sweet sleep mine eyelids close,
To serve my God when I awake. 5 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
When the world shall pass away,
To expect a glorious day,
2 O what sacred joys await them :
They shall see the Saviour then :
Never can oppose again.
3 Waiting for our Lord's returning,
Be it ours his word to keep;
Let us watch while others sleep:
13 HARK, the glad sound! the Saviour comes,
The Saviour promised long!
And every voice a song.
In Satan's bondage held ;
The iron fetters yield.
The bleeding soul to cure,
To enrich the humble poor.
The welcome shall proclaim ;
With Thy beloved Name.
14 Lo, He comes, with clouds descending,
Once for favour'd sinners slain,
Rob'd in dreadful majesty ;
See in solemn pomp appear!
High on Thine exalted throne;
O come quickly!
ND will the Judge descend,
And must the dead arise :
His all-discerning eyes?
2 How will my heart endure
The terrors of that day,
Astonish’d, shrink away?
The mansions of the dead;
What joyful tidings bread:
cannot bear; Fly to the shelter of his cross,
And seek salvation there.
16 COME, Thou long-expected Jesus,
Born to set Thy people frée ;
Let us find our rest in Thee!
Hope of all the earth Thou art,
Joy of every longing heart.
Born a child, and yet a King;
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring!
Rule in all our hearts alone;
Raise us to Thy glorious throne !
