2 Pilgrims here on earth, and strangers
Dwelling in the midst of foes,
In Thine arms may we repose;
1 And now another day is gone
I'll sing my Maker's praise, My comforts every hour make known,
His providence and grace.
My sins, how great their sum !
And strength for days to come. 3 I lay my body down to sleep,
Let angels guard my head ;
Their watch around my bed. 4 With cheerful heart I close mine eyes,
Since thou wilt not remove ;
Rejoicing in thy love.
1 GLORY to Thee, my God, this night,
For all the blessings of the light;
Beneath Thine own Almighty wings. 2 Forgive me, Lord, for Thy dear Son,
The ill that I this day have done ;
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.
The grave as little as my bed;
With joy behold the judgment-day. 4 O let my soul on Thee repose,
And may sweet sleep mine eyelids close ;
To serve my God, when I awake. 5 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow,
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
1 The day is past ; again we close
Our eyes in welcome sweet repose;
2 We own the sins that we have done ;
Forgive us through Thy only Son :
And be our Father and our Friend. 3 Keep us this night from every foe;
O let us still Thy goodness know ;
1 AGAIN, a sinful child, I come,
To seek my Father's face,
Before His throne of grace.
To take my quiet rest, Give me that peace which comes from Thee,
The sweetest and the best.
3 I know I have not tried to-day
To please Thee as I ought,
And seen each naughty thought. 4 How sinful must my heart appear
To One who looks within !
To save me from my sin.
Be all my sins forgiven;
Of Jesus Christ and Heaven. 6 So may I peacefully lie down
To take my rest to-night,
Until the morning light.
1 Now darkness shades the distant hills,
The little birds are hid and still,
Since my Creator is awake.
To think my Saviour guards my head,
HYMN FOR THE LORD'S DAY.
1 This is the day of glorious news,
As well for Gentiles as for Jews ;
The Lord is risen from the dead. 2 That blessed Jesus who was slain,
This day arose to life again ;
To comfort those He died to save. 3 Let all who love the Lord rejoice,
And bless His name with cheerful voice;
