“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 ;
The gift of temperance bestow
In drink and food.
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 ;
But our immortal spirits may.
If we have faltered or transgressed,
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,
P Creep on once more.
P 2 Our life is but a fading dawn ;
Its glorious noon how quickly past !
f Safe home at last.
Uplift our hearts to realms on high ;
Beyond the sky;
In undivided empire reign,
f Their deathless strain ;
F 5 Where saints are clothed in spotless white,
And evening shadows never fall;
Art Lord of all ! Amen.
