O Thou who didst with love unfold

O that the Lord's salvation

O Thou from whom all goodness flows..

O'twas a joyful sound to hear






Our God is love, and all His Saints.

Saviour when in dust to Thee
Soldiers of Christ arise..
Songs of praise the angels sang
Spirit of mercy, truth and love
Spirit of truth, on this thy day..
Sun of my soul Thou Saviour dear
Sweet the moments, rich in blessing

Take up thy cross, the Saviour said
That day of wrath, that dreadful day..
The angel comes, he comes to reap..
The happy morn is come

The life which God's Incarnate Word..

The heavens declare Thy glory, Lord
The Lord my pasture shall prepare
The Lord of might from Sinai's brow




The Lord will come, the earth shall quake..


The people that in darkness sat


The roseate hues of early dawn


The sacred season now doth call


The saints on earth and those above
The Saviour's gentle voice

There is a book who runs may read..
There is a blessed home..




There is a land of pure delight

They come God's messengers of love

This day the light of heavenly birth..

Thou art gone up on high





Thou art gone to the grave, but we will not
deplore thee

We sing the praise of Him who died
When all Thy mercies O my God



When God of old came down from heaven
When gathering clouds around we view
When I survey thy wondrous Cross
When Jesus left His Father's throne...
When our heads are bowed with woe
When rising from the bed of death
Where high the heavenly temple stands...
Where'er may turn Thy sacred feet

While shepherds watched their flock by night
We are little Christian children
With one consent let all the earth

Witness ye men and angels now


Ye boundless realms of joy
Ye servants of the Lord






L. M.

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.
Redeem thy misspent moments past,
And live this day as if thy last;
Thy talent to improve take care,
For the great day thyself prepare.
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.
Wake, and lift up thyself, my heart,
And with the angels bear thy part,
Who all night long unwearied sing
Glory to the Eternal King.

I wake, I wake; ye heavenly choir,
May your devotion me inspire,
That I, like you, my age may spend ;
Like you, may on my God attend.


May I, like you, in God delight,
Have all day long my God in sight,
Perform, like you, my Maker's will,
0 may I never more do ill!

Had I your wings, to heaven I'd fly;
But God shall that defect supply ;
And my soul, winged with warm desire,
Shall all day long to heaven aspire.

Glory to Thee, who safe hast kept,
And hast refreshed me whilst I slept;
Grant, Lord! when I from death shall wake,
I may of endless light partake.

Heaven is, dear Lord, where'er Thou art;
O never then from me depart;
For to my soul 'tis hell to be

But for one moment void of Thee.

Lord! I my vows to Thee renew,
Scatter my sins as morning dew;

Guard my first springs of thought and will,
And with Thyself my spirit fill.

Direct, control, suggest this day,
All I design, or do, or say;

That all my powers with all their might

ln Thy sole glory may unite.

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.



L. M.

NEw every morning is the love
Our wakening and uprising prove;
Through sleep and darkness safely brought,
Restored to life, and power, and thought.
New mercies, each returning day,
Hover around us while we pray;
New perils past, new sins forgiven,
New thoughts of God, new hopes of Heaven.
If on our daily course our mind
Be set to hallow all we find,
New treasures still, of countless price,
God will provide for sacrifice.

The trivial round, the common task,
Will furnish all we need to ask,
Room to deny ourselves, a road
To bring us daily nearer God.
Only, O Lord, in Thy dear love
Fit us for perfect rest above;
And help us this, and every day,
To live more nearly as we pray.

CHRIST, Whose glory fills the skies,
Christ, the true, the only Light,
Sun of Righteousness, arise,

Triumph o'er the shades of night:
Day-spring from on high, draw near!
Day-star, in our hearts appear!
