Hymns of the Living Church
Forth in Thy Name, O Lord, I Go
Give me to bear Thy easy yoke,
And every moment watch and pray;
And still to things eternal look,
And hasten to Thy glorious day.
Fain would I still for Thee employ
Whate'er Thy bounteous grace hath given,
And run my course with even joy,
And closely walk with Thee to heaven. Amen.
2 New Every Morning is the Love Melcombe L. M.
Through sleep and dark-ness safe-ly brought, Restored to life, and power, and thought. A-men.
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. Amen.
For Thy mer- cies, Lord, are sure; Thy com -pas-sion doth en- dure. A-men.
Still the greatness of Thy love
Daily doth our sins remove;
Daily, far as east from west,
Lifts the burden from the breast;
Gives unbought, to those who pray,
Strength to stand in evil day.
Let our prayers each morn prevail,
That these gifts may never fail;
And, as we confess the sin
And the tempter's power within,
Feed us with the Bread of Life;
Fit us for our daily strife.
As the morning light returns,
As the sun with splendor burns,
Teach us still to turn to Thee,
Ever blessed Trinity,
With our hands our hearts to raise,
In unfailing prayer and praise. Amen.
4 Awake, My Soul, and with the Sun Morning Hymn L. M.
FRANCOIS HIPPOLITE BARTHELEMON
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. Amen.
5 Lord God of Morning and of Night Germany L. M.
Arr. from Ludwig van Beethoven
Praise God, our Maker and our Friend,
Praise Him through time till time shall end,
Till psalm and song His name adore
Through heaven's great day of evermore. Amen.
