THE MORNING HYMN.
Thy daily stage of duty run;
To pay thy morning sacrifice.
And live this day as if the last
For the great day thyself prepare. 3 Lord, I my vows to Thee renew;
Disperse my sins as morning dew;
And with Thyself my spirit fill. 4 Direct, control, suggest, this day,
All I design, or do, or say,
In thy sole glory may unite. 5 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow,
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
THE EVENING HYMN.
For all the blessings of the light; Keep me, oh, keep me, King of kings,
Beneath thine own almighty wings ! 2 Forgive me, Lord, for thy dear Son,
The ills that I this day have done :
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be,

Rise glorious at the awful day.
And may sweet sleep mine eyelids close;
God when I awake.

1 A CHARGE to keep we have,
A God to glorify;
And fit them for the sky;
Our calling to fulfil ;-
To do our Master's will ! 2 Arm us with jealous care,
As in thy sight to live;
A strict account to give !
And on Thyself rely;
We shall for ever die. 2 ALMIGHTY God, in humble praycr
Do Thou our waiting minds prepare
For thy most needful gift.
Along our path to flow;
Nor length of years below.
May bring and take away;
power, Lest we should go astray. 4 We ask for wisdom :-Lord, impart
The knowledge how to live;
To all before Thee give. 3 ALMIGHTY GOD! thy word is cast
Like seed into the ground;
And righteous fruits abound.
2 Let not the foe of Christ and man
This holy seed remove;
To bring forth fruits of love.
The rising plant destroy;
The fruits of peace and joy.
Thy quick’ning grace bestow;
Its saving power may know.
ND now, my soul, another year
Of my short life is past;
Nor will return again ;
The few that do remain.
Thy true condition learn :
And what thy great concern ? 4 Now a new scene of time begins,
Set out afresh for heaven;
In Christ so freely given.
5 ANGELS from the realms of glory,
Wing your flight o'er all the earth;
Come and worship,
2 Shepherds in the field abiding,
Watching o'er your flock by night,
Waiting long with hope and fear,
Brighter visions beam afar;
Doomed for guilt to endless pains,
' , Another sabbath is begun; L. Return, my soul, enjoy thy rest,
Improve the day thy God hath blest. 2 Oh, that our thoughts and thanks may rise,
As grateful incense to the skies!
Which none but he that feels it knows. 3 This heavenly calm within the breast
Is the dear pledge of glorious rest,
The end of cares, the end of pains. 4 With joy, great God, thy works we view,
In various scenes, both old and new ;
