That bare me oft through flood and flame,
5 May that dear hand uphold me still,
1 THE day is past and gone,
2 We lay our garments by,
So death will soon disrobe us all
3 Lord, keep us safe this night,
4 And when our days are past,
And we from time remove,
1 How precious is the book divine,
Bright as a lamp its doctrines shine,
2 It sweetly cheers our drooping hearts,
3 This lamp, through all the tedious night
Till we behold the clearer light
Thy Will be Done.
TUNE- Vide the "Psaltery," p. 346.
1 "THY will be done!" In devious way
2 "Thy will be done!" If o'er us shine A gladdening and a prosperous sun, prayer will make it more divineThy will be done."
3 "Thy will be done!" Though shrouded o'er
Our path with gloom, one comfort, one
“Thy will we done."
The Happy Land.
AIR-" I have come from a happy land."
See Nason's "Vocal Class Book,” p. 67.
1 THERE is a happy land,
Where saints in glory stand,
O, how they sweetly sing,
2 Come to the happy land,
O, we shall happy be,
When from sin and sorrow free,
8 Bright in that happy land
Beams every eye;
Kept by a Father's hand,
Love cannot die;
Then shall His kingdom come,
Saints shall share a glorious home,
And bright above the sun,
We reign for aye.
A Morning Hymn.
TUNE-" Silver Lake."
1 GOD of the morning, at Thy voice
To run his journey through the skies.
2 From the fair chambers of the east, The circuit of his race begins, And without weariness, or rest,
Round the whole earth he flies and shines.
8 O, like the sun may I fulfil
The appointed duties of the day,
With ready mind, and active will,
March on and keep my heavenly way.
TUNE-" Evening Song."*
1 Now condescend, almighty King,
And kindly listen, while we sing
2 We come to own Thy power divine,
For this our grateful voices join
* Vide the "Psalmodist," p. 103.
3 May we in safety sleep to night,
Because the darkness and the light,
4 And when the rising sun displays
5 Brothers and sisters, hand in hand,
Then smile upon this cheerful band
MISS JANE TAYLOR.
A National Hymn.
AIR-" Scots wha hae."
1 CLIME! beneath whose genial sun
Kings were quelled and freedom won :
2 Heroes from thy sylvan shade
3 Crownless Judah mourns in gloom -
4 Youthful nation of the west,
