1 DEAR Jesus, thou hast safely kept
Me through the hours of night ;
Until the morning light.
To such a little thing ;
Thy praises, Lord, to sing.
To learn to praise and pray ;
My God, this very day.
And passionate and wild ;
And take me for Thy child.
1 I Thind for Thy cach this day
1 I THANK Thee, Lord, for quiet rest
And for Thy care of me:
And kept from harm by Thee. 2 Oh, let me love Thee! Kind thou art
To children such as I ; Give me a gentle, holy heart ;
Be Thou my Friend on high.
And do whate'er they tell ;
And keep them safe and well.
1 Now the night is past away,
Now returns the cheerful day ;
To my God in prayer and praise.
Through the darkness while I slept ; 'Tis His sun that shines so bright,
Bringing back the morning light.
From my Heavenly Father come;
+ While I count Thy mercies o’er,
Help me, Lord, to love Thee more;
1 THE darkness is over, the sun is on high,
The lark is up singing his song in the sky;
And everything serving and praising its God. 2 I will not lie sleeping my morning away,
But try to be busy and useful as they ;
And thank God for watching me all the night long. 3 How kind He is to me, how great, and how good !
I wish I could serve Him as well as I should :
1 The morning bright,
Has waked me from my sleep;
Thy little one doth keep.
2 All through the day,
Be Thou my Guard and Guide,
Blest Jesus, near Thy side.
Great Spirit of all grace ;
Prepared to see Thy face.
1 JESUS, tender Shepherd, hear me !
Bless thy little lamb to-night;
Watch my sleep till morning light. 2 All this day Thy hand has led me,
And I thank Thee for Thy care ; Thou hast clothed me, warm’d me, fed me,
Listen to my evening prayer. 3 Let my sins be all forgiven;
Bless the friends I love so well; Take me, when I die, to heaven,
Happy there with thee to dwell.
1 THROUGH the day Thy love hath spared us,
Wearied we lie down to rest ; Through the silent watches guard us,
Let no foe our peace molest; Jesus, Thou our guardian be, Sweet it is to trust in Thee.
