mp 5 Dear Saviour ! to thy cross,
I bring my sacrifice; < Tinged with thy blood, it shall ascend, mf With fragrance to the skies.
HYMN 582, C. M. 582
A Morning Song.
Salutes thy waking eyes;
To him wlio rules the skies.
The day renews the sound ;-
To turn the seasons round.
My tongue shall speak his praise ;
And yet his wrath delays.
Since the last setting sun;
And yet my moments run.
Whilst I enjoy the light;
Then shall my sun in smiles decline, P
And bring a peaceful night.
HYMN 583, L. M. 583
I safely passed the silent night; mf Again I see the breaking shade,
I drink again the morning light.
Once more, with awe, rejoice to be;
And springs, my guardian God ! to thee.
My doubtful feet may this day tread;
P 4 A deeper shade will soon impend,
A deeper sleep mine eyes oppress;
Thy goodness still 'delight to bless.
That deeper sleep shalt leave mine eyes;

Praisc to the God of the Morning. mf i Qon of the morning! at thy voice
The cheerful sun makes haste to rise,
To run his journey througli the skies ; mf 2 From the fair chambers of the east,
The circuit of his race begius,
Round the whole earth, he flies and shines. 3 Oh! like the sun may I fulfill
Th' appointed duties of the day;
With ready mind, and active will, mf March on, and keep my heavenly way.
4 Lord! thy commands are clean and pure,
Enlightening our beclouded eyes;
Thy gospel makes the simple wise.
And then receive me to thy bliss :
Are faint, and cold, compared with this

And fill my heart with lively praise.

And kind acceptance, at thy throne.
Safe in tlıy care may I repose,

2 Show me my sins, and how to mourn
My guilt before thy face;
And save me by thy grace.

My soul for joys above.
To sleep in death's embrace,
Let me, to heaven and glory, rise, mf To see thy smiling face.

Evening shades have set me free;
Lord! I would converse with theo :
Fill me with a Saviour's love.
Wither all my earthly joys;
But my Saviour's melting voice :

For the gospel's cheering ray, mf For the Spirit's quickening power,-
Grateful notes to thee I raise ;
Oh! accept my song of praise. 590

Like holy incense, rise ;
Assist the offerings of my tongue, mf To reach the lofty skies. 2 Through all the dangers of the day,
Thy hand was still my guard ;
And still, to drive my wants away,
Thy mercy stood prepared.
Encompass me around;
Creator found !
To save my wretched soul ?
Fast as the minutes roll!
To thy dear cross I flee;
To be renewed by thee.
I lay me down to rest, –
Or on my Saviour's breast. 591

Oh! let my spirit soar.
