Attendance on Worship.
1 I'LL bless Jehovah's glorious name, Whose goodness heaven and earth proclaim,
With every morning light; And, at the close of every day, To him my cheerful homage pay, Who guards me through the night. 2 Then in his churches to appear, And pay my humble worship there, Shall be my sweet employ : The day that saw my Saviour rise Shall dawn on my delighted eyes With pure and holy joy.
3 With grateful sorrow in my breast,
And, while his perfect love I view,
HYMN 134. 61. L. M. [#]
1 GREAT God, this sacred day of thine Demands our souls' collected powers; May we employ in work divine
These solemn, these devoted hours!

Where God resides appear no more: Omniscient God, thy piercing eye
Can every secret thought explore; O may thy grace our hearts refine, And fix our thoughts on things divine!
3 The word of life, dispensed to-day,
Be every heart an humble guest:
NATIVITY OF JESUS.

5 To-day is born, in Bethlehem,
HYMN 136. C. M. [#]
1 SHEPHERDS, rejoice; lift up your eyes, And send your fears away;

3 Thus Gabriel sang-and straight around
4 Glory to God who reigns above;
H. M. [#]
