Cheerful in God, arise and shine,
2 He gilds thy morning face
3 In honour to his name
HYMN 415. L. M. [#]
Joyful View of God's Works.
1 Now, to the God, to whom all might
2 His spirit wrapped the mantling air, Of old, around our infant earth, And, on her bosom, warm and fair,
Gave her young Lord his joyous birth.
3 He smiles on morning's rosy way;
He paints the gorgeous clouds of even; To noon he gives its ripening ray;
To night the view of glorious heaven.
4 He drives along those sparkling globes In circles of unerring truth;
He decks them all in radiant robes, And crowns them with eternal youth. 5 So will he crown the upright mind,
When life and all its toils are o'er : Then let his praise, on every wind, Rise, till the winds shall wake no more.
HYMN 416. C. M. [#]
Joy and Praise.
1 MORTALS, awake; exult in God;
His wondrous works and boundless love
2 His bounteous hand gives every good,
3 My soul shall lift his honours high,
HYMN 417. C. M. [#]

1 THY presence, Lord, gives pure delight,
2 Like water to the thirsty soul Are flowings of thy love,
Thy spirit sways with soft control,
3 Why should we then decline from thee? In search of folly rove?
Or strive to set our passions free
4 Extend around thy loving arms,
HYMN 418. 61. L. M. [#]
1 ARRAYED in clouds of golden light,
More bright than heaven's resplendent bow, Jehovah's angel came by night,
To bless the sleeping world below:
2 Good will henceforth to man be given;
And saints below rejoice with mirth:
HYMN 419. C. M. [# or 6]
1 WHILE thee I seek, protecting Power,
And may this consecrated hour
2 Thy love the power of thought bestowed;
3 In each event of life, how clear
Each blessing to my soul more dear,
4 In every joy that crowns my days, In every pain I bear,
My heart shall find delight in praise,
5 When gladness wings my favoured hour,
6 My lifted eye, without a tear,
HYMN 420. C. M. [b]
1 FATHER divine, thy piercing eye
2 There shall that piercing eye survey
3 I'll leave behind each earthly care;
4 So shall the visits of thy love
So shalt thou deign, in worlds above,
HYMN 421. L. M. [# or b ]
Devout Considerations and Desires.
1 As showers on meadows newly mown The Lord shall shed his blessings down; Crowned with whose life-infusing drops, Earth shall renew her blissful corps.
2 Lands that, beneath a burning sky,
