1. 3
So, like the sun, wonklf I fulfil
The bus'ness of the day;
Begin my work betimes, and still
Slarch on my heav'nly way.
.
Give me, 0 Lord, thy early grace
Nor let my soul complain,
That the young morning ofmy^dai
Has all been spent in vain.
Watts.
1.
An Evening Hymn.
3.
And now another day is gone,
I'll sing my Maker's praise:
My comforts ev'ry hour make known
His providence and grace.
2.
But how my childhood runs to
waste!
My sins, how great their sum!
Lord! give me pardon for the past.
And strength for days to come.
I lay my body down to sleep;
Let angels guard my head.
And, through the hours of darknesi
keep
Their watch around my bed.
4.
With cheerful heart I close my eyes
Since thou will not remove;
And in the morning let me rise,
Rejoicing in thy love.
W^\tts.
A Morning in Spring.
1.
4.
Lo! the bright, the rosy morning
Calls me forth to take the air;
Cheerful spring, with smiles return-
ing.
Ushers in the new-born year.
2.
Nature now in all her beauty,
With her gently moving tongue,
Prompts me to the pleasing duty,
Of a grateful morning song.
3.
Sec the early blossoms springing I
See the jocund lambkins play!
Hear the lark and linnet singing
Welcome to the new born day!
Vernal music, softly sounding,
Echoes through the verdan
grove;
Nature now with life abounding
Swells with harmony and love
5.
Now the kind refreshing showers
Water all the plains around;
Springing grass, and painted flowersj
In the smiling meads, abound.
6.
Now, their vernal dress assuming,^
Leafy robes adorn the trees;
Odours now, the air perfuming;
Sweetly swell the gentle breeze.
