5 Let this blest hope mine eyelids close,
336. An Evening Song. C. M.
1 Dread Sov’reign, let my evening song
2 Through all the dangers of the day
3 Perpetual blessings from above
4 What have I done for Him who died
6 Sprinkled afresh with pardoning blood,
337. An Evening Song. L. M.
1 Thus far the Lord hath led me on,
2 Much of my time has run to waste,
3 I lay my body down to sleep;
4 In vain the sons of earth or hell
5 Faith in his name forbids my fear;
6 Thus when the night of death shall come, My flesh shall rest beneath the ground, And wait thy voice to rouse my tomb With sweet salvation in the sound. Watts. 338. An Evening Song. C. M. 1 Lord, thou wilt hear me when I pray; I am for ever thine; I fear before thee all the day, Nor would I dare to sin. 2 And while I rest my weary head, From cares 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 and hope relies Upon thy grace alone. 4 Thus, with my thoughts compos'd to peace, I'll give mine eyes to sleep: Thy hand in safety keeps my days, And will my slumbers keep.
Watts. 339. On Going to Rest. S. M. 1 The day is past and gone, The evening shades appear; Oh, may we all remember well The night of death draws near.
2 We lay our garments by, Upon our beds to rest; So death will soon disrobe us all Of what is here possess'd. so 3 Lord, keep us safe this might, Secure from all our fears; May angels guard us while we sleep, Till morning light appears. 4 And when we early rise, And view the unwearied sun, | May we set out to win the prize, And after glory run. 5 And when our days are past, And we from time remove, 0, may we in thy bosom rest, The bosom of thy love.
340. Song for Morning or Evening. L. M.
1 My God, how endless is thy love! Thy gifts are every evening new; so 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, And 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.
341. For the Spirit's Influence. C. M.
1 In thy great name, O Lord, we come
2 We come to hear Jehovah speak,
3 Teach us to pray, and praise, and hear,
4 Here let thy power and grace be felt,
