But ah ! how few returns of love
Has our Redeemer found ! 4 What have we done for Him who died,
To save our sinful souls ? Alas! our sins are multiplied,
Fast as each minute rolls. 5 Yet with these guilty hearts of ours,
Lord ! to thy cross we flee; And yield them up with all their powers;
To be renew'd by Thee.
For morning or evening. 1 O Lord! another day, [night] is flown;
And we, a feeble band,
To bless thy guardian hand.
Bid strife and envy cease,
Thine everlasting peace.
In Christian bonds unite;
And hail the morning light. 4 Thus cleansed from sin, and wholly thine,
A flock by Jesus led,
In glory on our head. 5 And Thou wilt turn our wandering feet,
And Thou wilt bless our way;
Till faith ’midst falling worlds shall greet
We safely pass'd the silent night;
And drink again the morning light. 2 New-born we bless the waking hour,
Once more with awe rejoice to be;
And spring, our gracious God, to Thee. 3 Oh! guide us through the various maze
Our doubtful feet are doom'd to tread;
When dangers press around our head. 4 A deeper shade must soon impend,
A deeper sleep our eyes oppress;
Thy love, as now, thy servants bless. 5 That deeper shade shall fade away,
That deeper sleep shall leave my eyes ;
(P. M. HANOVER.)
God mindful of our temporal wants. 1 THOUGH troubles assail,
And dangers affright,
Though friends shall all fail,
And foes all unite;
The Lord will provide. 2 No strength of our own,
Or goodness we claim,
The Saviour's great name,
We safely may hide ;
The Lord will provide. 3 When fled is our youth,
And death is in sight,
Shall still be our Light;
With Christ on our side,
The Universal Prayer.
By earth and heaven adored !
The Universal Lord. 2 Thou Great First Cause, least understood,
Hast all our sense confined,
To know but this, that Thou art good,
And that ourselves are blind.
Or warns us not to do,
That, more than life pursue.
Still in the right to stay;
To find that better way.
And impious discontent,
Or aught thy goodness lent.
Whose altar, carth, sea, skies,
All nature's incense rise.
