HYMN 393. L. M.
1. HOW rich are thy provisions, Lord,
Were first invited to the feast;
And make our triumphs in his cross. 4. With joy we tell the scoffing age:
He, that was dead, hath left the tomb.
WE praise the Lord for heav'nly bread,
With which his favour'd sons are fed;
And hope that bears the soul above:
And does thy cup with love o'erflow?
And let them all its sweetness know.
2. O let thy table honour'd be,
And furnish'd well with joyful guests; And may each soul salvation see, That here its sacred pledges tastes. 3. Let crowds approach, with hearts prepar'd; With warm desire let all attend; Nor, when we leave our Father's board, The pleasure or the profit end. 4. Revive thy dying churches, Lord! And bid our drooping graces live; And more that energy afford,
A Saviour's death alone can give. 5. Nor let thy spreading gospel rest,
'Till through the world thy truth has run, "Till with this bread all men be blest Who see the light or feel the sun!

2. Thou spread'st the curtains of the night, Great Guardian of my sleeping hours! Thy sov'reign word restores the light,
And quickens all my drowsy pow'rs. 3. I yield myself to thy command;
To thee devote my nights and days.
Demand perpetual hymns of praise.

HYMN 400. c. M.
1. LORD of my life! O may thy praise
Whose goodness lengthens out my days,
2. Preserv'd by thy almighty arm,
3. While many spent the night in sighs, And restless pains and woes,
In gentle sleep I clos'd my eyes
4. When sleep, death's semblance, o'er me spread, And I unconscious lay;
Thy watchful care was round my bed,
5. O let the same almighty care
6. Smile on my minutes as they roll,
HYMN 401. L. M.
1. IN sleep's serene oblivion laid,
I safely pass'd the silent night: Again I see the breaking shade,
I drink again the morning light,
2. New-born, I bless the waking hour; Once more, with awe, rejoice to be: My conscious soul resumes her pow'r, And springs, my guardian God! to thee. 3. O guide me through the various maze,
My doubtful feet are doom'd to tread;
A deeper sleep my eyes oppress:
That deeper sleep shall leave my eyes:
1. AWAKE, my soul! and with the sun
Thy daily stage of duty run;
Let thy own light to others shine;
3. Lord! I my vows to thee renew:
4. Direct, control, suggest, this day,
That all my pow'rs, with all their might,
5. All praise to thee, who safe hast kept,
HYMN 403. c. M.
To thee let my first off'rings rise,
