THE CHRISTIAN LIFE-

Thy daily stage of duty run;
To pay thy morning sacrifice.
And with the Angels bear thy part,
High praise to the Eternal King.
And hast refreshed me whilst I slept;
I may of endless light partake.
Disperse my sins as morning dew;
And with Thyself my spirit fill.
All I design, or do, or say;
Praise God from Whom, &c. (Doxology v.)
“Unto you that fear my Name shall the
Sun of Righteousness arise.”
Christ, the true, the only Light,
Triumph o'er the shades of night:
Day-star, in my heart appear.
Unaccompanied by Thee;
Till Thy mercy's beams I see-
Glad my eyes and warm my heart.
Pierce the gloom of sin and grief,
Scatter all my unbelief :
“When I awake, I am still with Thee."
Preserved, O Lord, by Thee,
Again we bow the knee.
Preserve us by Thine arm;
Whom Thou preserv'st from harm.
3 Let all our words and all our ways
Declare that we are Thine,
Before the world may shine.
O Saviour, hold us fast,
Thy glorious face at last. Amen.
4 “His compassions fail not; they are new
Our wakening and uprising prove;
Restored to life and power and thought. 2 New mercies, each returning day,
Hover around us while we pray;
New thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven. 3 If, on our daily course, our mind
Bé set to hallow all we find,
God will provide for sacrifice.
As more of heaven in each we see;
Shall dawn on every cross and care. 5 The trivial round, the common task,
Will furnish all we ought to ask;
6 Only, O Lord, in Thy dear love,
Fit us for perfect rest above;
5 “He that followeth Me shall not walk in
darkness, but shall have the light of life.” 1 O JESU, Lord of heavenly grace,
Thou brightness of the Father's face,
Whose beams disperse the shades of night; 2 Come, Holy Sun of heavenly love,
Pour down Thy radiance from above,
The Holy Spirit's cloudless ray.
And loose the bands of wickedness;
And guide us safely to the end.
Subdue our flesh, our minds control:
And all within be joy and peace. 5 O hallow'd thus be every day;
Let meekness be our morning ray,
And hope our sunset calm and bright. 6 O Christ, with each returning morn
Thine image to our heart is borne;
