1 AWAKE, my soul, and with the sun

Thy daily stage of duty run ;
Shake off dull sloth, and early rise,

To pay thy morning sacrifice.
2 Wake, and lift up thyself, my heart,

And with the angels bear thy part;
Who all night long unwearied sing,

High glory to the eternal King.
3 Glory to Thee who safe hast kept,

And hast refresh'd me while I slept ; Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake,

I may of endless life partake.
4 Lord, I my vows to Thee renew,

Scatter my sins as morning dew;
Guard my first spring of thought and will,
And with thyself my spirit fill.

5 Direct, control, suggest this day,

All I design, or do, or say;
That all my powers, with all their might,

In thy sole glory may unite. 6 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;

Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, angelic host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

2.

For the Morning of the Sabbath. (4.8 & 2. 6.) 1 This is our solemn day of praise; To Thee our voices high we raise,

Eternal God and King;
To thy blest courts we will repair,
Approach thy throne in fervent prayer,

And heart-felt tributes bring.
2 Prosper this day thy sacred word,
And grant, that as a two-edg'd sword,

It may our hearts explore; Attended by thy powerful grace, Let it each guilty spot erase, And

may we sin no more. 3 Then shall we hope, when Thou dost come To fix our everlasting doom,

To hear these joyful words, Go, join the heavenly choir, and sing 'Eternal praises to our King,

Jehovah, Lord of lords.'

Morning Hymn of Praise.

L. M.

1 O COME, let us,

with one accord,
Lift up our voice and praise the Lord;
Let us this morning bless His name,

And laud and magnify the same. 2 Let universal nature raise

A cheerful voice to give Him praise ;
Let all the world His glory sing,

Who is their Saviour, Lord, and King. 3 For by His word the heavens were made,

The earth's foundation also laid;
All things were done at His command,
Which through all ages firmly stand.

4 Wherefore let heaven and earth

agree
To sing His praise in unity ;
And let us here, with one accord,
Sing hallelujah,,praise the Lord.

4. For God's blessing on the means of grace. (6. 8.) 1 GREAT GOD! this sacred day of thine

Demands the soul's collected powers;
Gladly may we to Thee resign

These solemn consecrated hours;
Now may our souls, adoring, own
The grace that calls us to thy throne.
