3 Keep our haughty passions bound; Save us from our foes around;
Going out, and coming in,
Keep us safe from every sin.
4 When our work of life is past,
O! receive us then at last,
Night of sin will be no more,
When we reach the heavenly shore. HARTFORD COL
HYMN 16. C. M. Zion. [b]
1 O Lord! another day is flown,
Are met once more before thy throne,
2 And wilt thou bend a listening ear,
Thou wilt, for thou dost love to hear
3 And, Jesus! thou thy smiles will deign,
For thou didst bless the infant train,
4 O! let thy grace perform its part,
5 Thus chasten'd, cleans'd, entirely thine,
The Sun of holiness shall shine,
In glory on our head.
6 And thou wilt turn our wandering feet,
Till worlds shall fade, and faith shall greet
HYMN 17. L. M. Portugal. [*]
1 My God, how endless is thy love!
2 Thou spread'st the curtains of the night,
3 I yield my powers to thy command,
HYMN 18. C. M. Reading. [b]
1 Lord of my life! O, may thy praise
2 Preserv'd by thine almighty arm
3 O! let the same almighty care,
4 Smile on my minutes as they roll,
And let thy goodness fill my soul
With gratitude and praise.
HYMN 19. C. M. Hymn Second. [*]
1 Indulgent God, whose bounteous care
O! let my grateful praise and prayer
2 What mercies has this day bestow'd!
My cup with plenty overflow'd,
3 Now may soft slumbers close my eyes,
And let my wakeful thoughts arise
4 Thus bless each future day and night,
And then to realms of endless light,
O! let my spirit soar.
HYMN 20. C. M. Mear. [*]
1 To thee, Great God! in thankful song
My morning vows shall rise;
Thy goodness made my slumbers sweet,
2 With joyful heart, I now behold
3 How many, dear to thee, opprest
4 Still on their restless beds they lie,
Whilst I rais'd up from soft repose,
5 Through whate'er trying scenes this day,
6 Thus every morning shall my song
As holy incense rise,
Propitious, in thy Son, accept
The willing sacrifice.
HYMN 21. S. M. Watchman. [*]
1 The day is past and gone,
So death will soon disrobe us all}
3 Lord! keep us safe this night,
May angels guard us while we sleep,
4 And, if we early rise
And view the unwearied sun, May we set out to win the prize, And after glory run.
HYMN 22. L. M. Sicilian. [*]
1 How should the morning of my days,
HYMN 23. C. M. Hymn Second. [b]
1 Dread Sov'reign! let my evening song,
Assist the offerings of my tongue
To reach the lofty skies.
2 Through all the dangers of the day,
3 Perpetual blessings from above
But, O! how few returns of love
4 What have I done for him, who died
To save my wretched soul!
How are my follies multiplied,
Fast as my minutes roll!
5 Lord! with this guilty heart of mine, To thy dear cross I flee,
And to thy grace my soul resign
To be renewed by thee.
6 Sprinkled afresh with pard'ning blood, I lay me down to rest,
As in the embraces of my God,
Or on my Saviour's breast.
HYMN 24. C. M. St. Martins. [*]
1 God of our lives! our morning songs,
To thee we cheerful raise, Thine acts of love 'tis good to sing, And pleasant 'tis to praise.
2 Guardian of man! thy wakeful eyes Nor sleep, nor slumber know;
Thine eyes pierce thro' the shades of night, Intent on all below.
3 Sustain'd by thee, our opening eyes, Salute the morning light;
Secure we stand, unhurt by all
The arrows of the night.
4 Our lives renewed, our strength repaired To thee our God are due;
Teach us thy ways, and give us grace,
5 From every evil way defend,
6 O may thy holy fear command,
HYMN 25. 7s. Hotham. [*]
1 Safely through another week,
God has brought us on our way;
2 Mercies, multiplied each hour,
Guarded by Almighty Power,
Fed and guided by his hand;
Though ungrateful we have been,
