2 With courage drest, strong-hearted, blest,
Fulfil thy work abroad ;
A happy child of God.
Amid its noontide heat,
The rest of sonship sweet. 4 In liberty of holy glee,
Accept thy childhood's part,
The Father in thy heart.
Life's duty grows divine,
The water turns to wine.
Who deign'st with men to dwell ;
J. E. Livock. 68
Thy aid impart to me,
Acceptable to Thee.
And, as the moments fly,
Something of evil die. 3 Some grace that seeks my heart to win,
With shining victory meet,
Find overthrow complete.
4 That so throughout the coming day
The hours shall carry me
F. A. Percy.
69 Now, when the dusky shades of night, re
treating Before the sun's red banner, swiftly flee; Now, when the terrors of the dark are
fleeting, O Lord, we lift our thankful hearts to
2 To Thee, whose word, the fount of life
unsealing, When hill and dale in thickest darkness
lay, A woke bright rays across the dim earth
stealing, And bade the eve and morn complete
3 Look from the height of heaven and send
to cheer us Thy light and truth, and guide us on
ward still ; Still let Thy mercy, as of old, be near us,
And lead us safely to Thy holy hill.
4 So, when that morn of endless light is
waking, And shades of evil from its splendors
flee, Safe may we rise, this earth's dark vale
forsaking, Through all the long bright day to dwell 5 Be this by Thee, O God thrice holy,
granted. O Father, Son, and Spirit, ever blest ; Whose glory by the heaven and earth is
chanted, Whose name by men and angels is confest.
C. M. O LORD of life, Thy quick’ning voice
Awakes my morning song ;
That I to Thee belong.
Earth is Thy uttered word ; Whatever wakes my heart and mind,
Thy presence is, my Lord. 3 Therefore I choose my highest part,
And turn my face to Thee ; Therefore I stir my inmost heart
To worship fervently. 4 Within my heart, speak, Lord, speak on,
My heart alive to keep
In Thee I fall asleep.
L. M. O JESUS, Lord of heav'nly grace, Thou brightness of Thy Father's face; Thou fountain of eternal light,
Whose beams disperse the shades of night! 2 Come, holy sun of heavenly love,
Shower down Thy radiance from above,
And to our inward hearts convey
The Holy Spirit's cloudless ray.
And loose the bonds of wickedness;
And bring us to a prosperous end. 4 May faith, deep-rooted in the soul,
Subdue our flesh, our minds control ;
And all within be joy and peace.
Let meekness be our morning ray,
And hope our sunset, calm and bright. 6 O Christ, with each returning morn
Thine image to our hearts is borne :
Ambrose. Tr. J. Chandler.
2 Fresh hopes have wakened in the heart,
Fresh force to do our daily part ;
3 Yet whilst Thy will we would pursue,
Oft what we would we cannot do ;
4 O Lord of lights, 'tis Thou alone
Canst make our darkened hearts thine own; Though this new day with joy we see,
Great Dawn of God, we cry for Thee ! 5 Praise God, our Maker and our friend,
Praise Him thro’ time till time shall end, Till psalm and song His name adore Through heaven's great day of evermore.
F. T. Palgrave. 73
11s, 10s. Iambic STILL, still with Thee, when purple morn
ing breaketh, When the bird waketh, and the shadows
flee; Fairer than morning, lovelier than the day
light, Dawns the sweet consciousness, I am with
Thee ! 2 Alone with Thee, amid the mystic shadows,
The solemn hush of nature newly born ; Alone with Thee, in breathless adoration, In the calm dew and freshness of the
morn. 3 When sinks the soul, subdued by toil, to
slumber, Its closing eye looks up to Thee in
prayer ; Sweet the repose beneath Thy wings o'er
shading, But sweeter still, to wake and find Thee
there. 4 So shall it be at last, in that bright morn
ing, When the soul waketh, and life's shad
