3 Oh let the same almighty care
Through all this day attend :
My heedless steps defend.
And guide my future days;
With gratitude and praise.
A Morning Hymn.
My voice ascending high ;
To thee lift up mine eye;-
To plead for all his saints, Presenting at his Father's throne
Our songs and our complaints. 3 Thou art a God, before whose sight
The wicked shall not stand : Sinners shall ne'er be thy delight,
Nor dwell at thy right hand. 4 But to thy house will I resort,
To taste thy mercies there;
And worship in thy fear.
In ways of righteousness; Make every path of duty straight,
And plain before my face.
Begins his glorious way;
And life and light convey. 2 But where the gospel comes,
It spreads diviner light,
And gives the blind their sight. 3 How perfect is thy word!
And all thy judgments just! Forever sure thy promise, Lord,
And we securely trust.
Are thy directions given!
But find the path to heaven.
C. M. 459
God the Preserver of Men.
Preserved, O Lord, by thee,
Again we bow the knee.
With clear, convincing light,
And chase our mental night.
And guide us by thine arm;
Whom thou dost save from harm.
L. M. 460
An Evening Hymn.
Thus far his power prolongs my days;
Some fresh memorial of his grace. 2 Much of my time has run to waste,
And I, perhaps, am near my home;
He gives me strength for days to come. 3 I lay my body down to sleep;
Peace is the pillow for my head;
Their watchful stations round my bed. 4 Thus, when the night of death shall come,
My flesh shall rest beneath the ground, And wait thy voice to break my tomb,
With sweet salvation in the sound. 461 DREAD Sovereign, let my evening song
Like holy, incense rise ;
To reach the lofty skies.
Thy hand was still my guard;
Thy mercy stood prepared.
Encompass me around,
Hath my Redeemer found!
4 What have I done for him who died
To save my guilty soul?
Fast as my minutes roll!
Lord, to thy cross I flee,
To be renewed by thee. 462 GREAT God, to thee my evening song
With humble gratitude I raise ;
And fill my heart with lively praise. My days unclouded as they pass,
And every gently rolling hour,
And witness to thy love and power. 3 Thy love and power, celestial guard,
Preserve me from surrounding harm: Can danger reach me while the Lord
Extends his kind, protecting arm? 4 Let this blest hope my eyelids close;
With sleep refresh my feeble frame; Safe in thy care may I repose,
And wake with praises to thy name. 463
GLORY to thee, my God, this night,
Beneath thine own almighty wings. 2 Forgive me, Lord, for thy dear Son,
The ill that I this day have done;
That with the world, myself, and thee,
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be. 3 Lord, let my soul forever share
The bliss of thy paternal care ;
S. M. 464
An Evening Hymn.
The hours forever fled;
To mingle with the dead.
My Father's care shall keep;
For thou canst never sleep.
On thee securely stayed!
The evening shades appear;
The night of death draws near. 2 Lord, keep me safe this night,
Secure from all my fears ;
Till morning light appears. 3 And when I early rise,
To view th' unwearied sun,
