1 “I myself will awake right early.
1 AWAKE, my soul, and with the sun

Thy daily stage of duty run ;
Shake off dull sloth, and joyful 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 praise to the Eternal King.
3 All praise to Thee, Who safe hast kept,

And hast refreshed me whilst I slept;
Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake,

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

Disperse my sins as morning dew;
Guard my first springs 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.

Praise God from Whom, &c. (Doxology v.)

2 Unto you that fear my Name shall the

Sun of Righteousness arise.”
1 CHRIST, Whose glory fills the skies,

Christ, the true, the only Light,
Sun of Righteousness, arise,

Triumph o'er the shades of night:
Day-spring from on high, be near;

Day-star, in my heart appear.
2 Dark and cheerless is the morn

Unaccompanied by Thee;
Joyless is the day's return

Till Thy mercy's beams I see-
Till they inward light impart,
Glad my eyes and warm my heart.

3 Visit then this soul of mine,

Pierce the gloom of sin and grief,
Fill me, Radiancy divine !

Scatter all my unbelief:
More and more Thyself display,
Shining to the perfect day. Amen.

When I awake, I am still with Thee."
1 THROUGH all the dangers of the night,

Preserved, O Lord, by Thee,
Again we hail the cheerful light,

Again we bow the knee.
2 O guide us, Lord, throughout the day,

Preserve us by Thine arm;
For they are safe, and only they,

Whom Thou preserv'st from harm.

3 Let all our words and all our ways

Declare that we are Thine,
That so the light of truth and grace

Before the world may shine.
4 Let us ne'er turn away from Thee;

O Saviour, hold us fast,
Till with unclouded eyes we see

Thy glorious face at last. Amen.

4 His compassions fail not; they are new

every morning." 1 New every morning is the love Our wakening and uprising prove; Through sleep and darkness safely brought,

Restored to life and power and thought. 2 New mercies, each returning day,

Hover around us while we pray;
New perils past, new sins forgiven,

New thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven. 3 If, on our daily course, our mind

Be set to hallow all we find,
New treasures still, of countless price,

God will provide for sacrifice.
4 Old friends, old scenes, will lovelier be,

As more of heaven in each we see;
Some softening gleam of love and prayer

Shall dawn on every cross and care. 5 The trivial round, the common task,

Will furnish all we ought to ask;
Room to deny ourselves—a road
To bring us daily nearer God.

6 Only, O Lord, in Thy dear love,

Fit us for perfect rest above;
And help us, this and every day,
To live more nearly as we pray. Amen.

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,
Thou fountain of eternal light,

Whose beams disperse the shades of night; 2 Come, Holy Sun of heavenly love,

Pour down Thy radiance from above,
And to our inward hearts convey

The Holy Spirit's cloudless ray.
3 May He our actions deign to bless,

And loose the bands of wickedness;
From sudden falls our feet defend,

And guide us safely to the end.
4 May faith, deep rooted in the soul,

Subdue our flesh, our minds control:
May guile depart, and discord cease,

And all within be joy and peace. 5 O hallow'd thus be every day;

Let meekness be our morning ray,
And faithful love our noon-day light,

And hope our sunset calm and bright. 6 O Christ, with each returning morn

Thine image to our heart is borne;
O may we ever clearly see
Our Saviour and our God in Thee. Amei
