2

So pilgrims, on the scorching sand,
Beneath a burning sky,
Long for a cooling stream at hand,
And they must drink or die.
3

Not life itself, with all its joys,
Can my best passions move;
Nor raise so high my cheerful voice,
As thy forgiving love.

4

Thus, till my last expiring day,
I'll bless my God and King;
Thus will I lift my hands to pray,
And tune my lips to sing.

God the only Object of Worship.
1

O God, our strength, to thee the song
With grateful hearts we raise;
To thee, and thee alone, belong
All worship, love, and praise.
2

Led by the light thy grace imparts,
Ne'er may we bow the knee
To idols, which our wayward hearts
Set up instead of thee.

3

So shall thy choicest gifts, O Lord,
Thy faithful people bless;
For them shall earth its stores afford,
And Heaven its happiness.

3

Call me away from flesh and sense;
One sovereign word can draw me hence;
I would obey the voice divine,
And all inferior joys resign.

4

Be earth, and all her scenes, withdrawn ; Let noise and vanity be gone:

In secret silence of the mind,

My heaven, and there my God, I find.

Evening Hymn.
1

Glory to thee, my God, this night,
For all the blessings of the light:
Keep me, O keep me, King of kings,
Under thy own almighty wings.

2
Forgive me, Lord, through 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 Teach me to live, that I may dread The grave as little as my bed; To die, that this vile body may Rise glorious at the awful day. 4

O, may my soul on thee repose,
And may sweet sleep mine eyelids close;
Sleep that may me more vigorous make,
To serve my God when I awake.
