“Sing ye praises with understanding."-Ps. xlvii. 7.
1 AWAKE, my soul, and with the sun
Thy daily stage of duty run ;
To pay thy morning sacrifice.
And with the angels bear thy part;
High glory to the eternal King.
And hast refresh'd me while I slept ; Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake,
I may of endless life partake.
Scatter my sins as morning dew;
5 Direct, control, suggest this day,
All I design, or do, or say;
In thy sole glory may unite. 6 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
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;
And heart-felt tributes bring.
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.
1 O COME, let us,
with one accord,
And laud and magnify the same. 2 Let universal nature raise
A cheerful voice to give Him praise ;
Who is their Saviour, Lord, and King. 3 For by His word the heavens were made,
The earth's foundation also laid;
4 Wherefore let heaven and earth
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;
These solemn consecrated hours;
