HYMNS.

FOR THE MORNING.

(Psalm v. 3.) 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.
2 Redeem thy mis-spent moments past,

And live this day as if The Last,
Thy Talents to improve take care,

For the Great Day thyself prepare. 3 Let all thy converse be sincere,

Thy conscience as the noon-day clear;
For God's all-seeing Eye surveys

Thy secret thoughts, thy works and ways. 4 Wake, and lift up thyself, my heart,

And with the angels bear thy part,
Who all night long unwearied sing

High praise to the Eternal King. 5 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.

2

All praise to Thee Who safe hast kept,
And ħast refresh'd me, while I slept !
Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake,
I may of endless life partake.
