They are by John Austin,

who died in 1669:

"My God was with me all this night,
And gave me sweet repose;
My God did watch, e'en whilst I slept,
Or I had never rose.

Lord, for the mercies of the night
My humble thanks I pay;
And unto thee I dedicate

The first fruits of the day.

Let this day praise thee, O my God!
And so let all my days!
And oh, let mine eternal day
Be thine eternal praise."
