And I am chained to flesh no more,
With what glad accents shall I rise
To join the music of the skies!

2 Art thou my Father? Canst thou bear,
To hear my poor, imperfect prayer?
Or stoop to listen to the praise
That such a little one can raise ?

3 Art thou my Father ?—Let me be
A meek, obedieut child to thee,
And try, in every deed and thought,
To serve and please thee as I ought.

4 Art thou my Father?—I’ll depend
Upon the care of such a friend,
And only wish to do and be,
Whatever seemeth good to thee.

5 Art thou my Father?—Then, at last,
When all my days on earth are past,
Send down, and take me, in thy love,
To be thy better child above.

1 ALMIGHTY God! thy gracious power
On every hand I see;


O may the blessings of each hour
Lead all my thoughts to thee!

To earth's remotest bound,
Thy hand will there my footsteps lead,
Thy love my path surround.

3 Thy power is in the ocean deeps,
And reaches to the skies;

Thine eye of mercy never sleeps,
Thy goodness never dies.

4 From morn till noon, till latest eve,
The hand of God I see;
And all the blessings I receive,
Ceaseless proceed from thee.

5 In all the varying scenes of time
On thee my hopes depend;
Through every age, in every clime,
My Father and my Friend!

Hear thee speaking from on high.

And at evening let me say,
“I have walked with God to-day.”

2 Thine all surrounding sight surveys
My rising and my rest,
My public walks, my private ways,
The secrets of my breast.

Before they’re formed within;
And ere my lips pronounce the word,
He knows the sense I mean. -

4 Oh! wondrous knowledge, deep and high!
Where can a creature hide?
Within thy circling arms I lie,
Beset on every side. "

5 So let thy grace surround me still,
And like a bulwark prove,
To guard my soul from every ill,
Secured by sovereign love.

1 Go, when the morning shineth,
Go, when the moon is bright,
Go, when the eve declineth, '
Go, in the hush of might;
Go, with pure mind and feeling,
Fling earthly thought away,
And in thy chamber kneeling,
Do thou in secret pray.

2 Remember all who love thee,

All who are loved by thee,

Pray too, for those who hate thee,
If any such there be:

Then for thyself, in meekness,
A blessing humbly claim,

And link with each petition
Thy great Redeemer's name.
