AN INTROIT, TO BE SUNG BETWEEN THE

LITANY AND COMMUNION SERVICE.

R. H.

Oh most merciful!
Oh most bountiful!
God the Father Almighty !
By the Redeemer's
Sweet intercession
Hear us, help us when we cry!

HYMN AFTER SERMON.

ANON.

LORD, now we part in Thy blest name,
In which we here together came,
Grant us our few remaining days
To work Thy will, and spread Thy praise !

Teach us in life and death to bless
The Lord, our strength and righteousness;
And grant us all to meet above,
Then shall we better sing Thy love!

BEFORE THE SACRAMENT.

R. H.

BREAD of the world, in mercy broken !
Wine of the soul, in

mercy

shed !
By whom the words of life were spoken,

And in whose death our sins are dead!

Look on the heart by sorrow broken,

Look on the tears by sinners shed,
And be Thy feast to us the token

That by Thy grace our souls are fed !

[See also the Hymn for second Sunday after Trinity.]

MORNING HYMN.

BISHOP KENN.

AWAKE my soul, and with the sun
Thy daily stage of duty run!
Shake off dull sloth, and early rise
To pay thy morning sacrifice.

Awake! lift up thyself my heart !
And with the angels bear thy part,
Who all night long unwearied sing
High thanks to their Almighty King!

Glory to Thee who safe hast kept,
And hast refresh'd me while I slept ;
Grant Lord, when I from death shall wake,
I may of endless life partake!

Lord, I my vows to Thee renew;
Scatter my sins as morning dew!
Guard my first springs of thought and will,
And with Thyself my spirit fill!

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 all blessings flow! Praise Him all creatures here below! Praise Him above, ye Heavenly Host! Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost !

EVENING HYMN.

BISHOP KENN.

Glory to Thee my God! this night, For all the blessings of the light ! Keep me, oh keep me, King of kings! Under Thine own Almighty wings!

Forgive me Lord, for Thy dear Son,
The ill that I this day have done ;
That with the world, myself, and Thee,
I ere I sleep, at peace may

be !

Oh let my soul on Thee repose,
And with sweet sleep mine eyelids close :
Sleep that may me more vigorous make
To work Thy will when I awake!

Teach me to live, that I may

dread The grave as little as my bed ; Teach me to die, that so I

may With joy behold the judgement day!

Praise God, &c.
