He will be our guide even unto death.—Ps. xlviii. 14. THE star of morn has risen ;

3 Let not the flesh prevail, O Lord, to Thee we pray :

But all be ruled by good ;
O uncreated Light of Light,

The gift of temperance bestow
Guide Thou our way.

In drink and food.
Sinless be tongue and hand,

4. As the swift day rolls on, And innocent the mind,

Still, Lord, our Guardian be, Let simple truth be on our lips,

And keep the portals of our hearts Our hearts be kind.

From evil free.

Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray and cry aloud.—Ps. Iv. 17.

1 Up to the throne of God is borne

The voice of praise at early morn, And He accepts the punctual hymn Sung as the light of day grows dim.

2 Nor will He turn His ear aside

From holy offerings at noontide ; Then here to Him our souls we raise In songs of gratitude and praise.

4 Lookup to heaven! Theunwearied sun

Already half his race hath run ;
He cannot halt nor go astray,

But our immortal spirits may.
5 Lord ! since his rising in the East

If we have faltered or transgressed,
Guide, from Thy love's abundant

source
What yet remains of this day's course.
6 Help with Thy grace, through life's

short day, Our upward and our downward way: cres. And glorifv for us the West, dim. When we shall sink to final rest.

3 Blest are the moments, doubly blest, That, drawn from this one hour of

rest, Are with a ready heart bestowed Upon the service of our God !

Begotten again unto an inheritance that fadeth not away."--1 Pet. i. 3, 4.

1 THE radiant morn hath passed away,
And spent too soon her golden store ;
The shadows of departing day

P Creep on once more.

P 2 Our life is but a fading dawn ;

Its glorious noon how quickly past !
cres. Lead us, O Christ, when all is gone,

f Safe home at last.
3 Oh, by Thy soul-inspiring grace,

Uplift our hearts to realms on high ;
Help us to look to that bright place

Beyond the sky;
4 Where light and life and joy and peace

In undivided empire reign,
f And thronging Angels never cease

f Their deathless strain ;

F 5 Where saints are clothed in spotless white,

And evening shadows never fall;
Where Thou, Eternal Light of Light,

Art Lord of all ! Amen.

the shadow of the Almighty.”—Ps. xci. 1.
