2 When the soft dews of kindly sleep
My weary eyelids gently steep,
Be my last thought, how sweet to rest
For ever on my Savior's breast.
3 Abide with me from morn till eve,

For without Thee I cannot live;
Abide with me when night is nigh,

For without Thee I dare not die.
4 If some poor wandering child of Thine

Have spurned today the voice divine,
Now, Lord, the gracious work begin;

Let him no more lie down in sin.
5 Watch by the sick; enrich the poor
With blessings from Thy boundless store;
Be every mourner's sleep tonight,

Like infants' slumbers, pure and light.
6 Come near and bless us when we wake,

Ere through the world our way we take,
Till in the ocean of Thy love
We lose ourselves in heaven above.

J. Keble. 1820

The hours of day are

0 - ver, Theeve-ning calls us home;

Once more to Th

Fa - ther, With thankful hearts we come;

For all Thy count-less bless - ings We praise Thy ho - ly name,

And own Thy love un - chang - ing, Through days and years the same.

2 For this, O Lord, we bless Thee,

For this we thank Thee most:
The cleansing of the sinful,

The saving of the lost;
The Teacher ever present,

The Friend for ever nigh,
The home prepared by Jesus
For us above the sky.

3 Lord, gather all Thy children

To meet Thee there at last, Where earthly tasks are ended,

And earthly days are past; With all our loved ones round us

In that eternal home, Where death no more shall part us, And night shall never come.

J. Ellerton, 1858

Great God, we praise Thy gracious care, Which does our dai-ly bread prepare;

bless the earth-ly food we take, And feed our souls for Je-sus' sake.

2 O feed the hungry, God of love, 3 Defend and bless our government, Who sigh for bread to Heaven above; And give us all a mind content! Give to our land prosperity,

() grant our souls the heavenly food And bless the earth, the sky, the sea! Which Jesus purchased with His blood.

Our hearts and our voic- es in hymn - ing Thy praise,

Our

[blocks in formation]

2 When stooping to earth from the brightness of heaven,

Thy blood for our ransom so freely was given,
Thou deignedst to listen while children adored,

1:With joyful Hosannas, the blest of the Lord.: 1
3 Those arms, which embraced little children of old,

Still love to encircle the lambs of the fold;
That grace which inviteth the wandering home,
11:Hath never forbidden the youngest to come.:|
4 Hosanna! Hosanna! Great Teacher, we raise
Our hearts and our voices in hymning Thy praise;
For precept and promise so graciously given,
1: For blessings of earth, and for glories of heaven.:|

Sav - ior, like a shep-herd lead us, Much we need Thy tenderest care:

In Thy pleas-ant pastures feed us, For our use Thy folds prepare;

Attt

Bless-ed Je - sus, Bless-ed Je - sus, Thou hast bought us, Thine we are.

2 Thou hast promised to receive us,

Poor and sinful though we be; Thou hast mercy to relieve us,

Grace to cleanse, and power to free; Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,

Let us early turn to Thee.

3 Early let us seek Thy favor,

Early let us do Thy will;
Blessed Lord and only Savior,

With Thy love our bosoms fill;
Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
Thou hast loved us, love us still.
