2 When the soft dews of kindly sleep
For without Thee I cannot live;
For without Thee I dare not die.
Have spurned today the voice divine,
Let him no more lie down in sin.
Like infants' slumbers, pure and light.
Ere through the world our way we take,
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 saving of the lost;
The Friend for ever nigh,
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.
ta - ble now with food is spread; O God, who giv-est dai-ly bread,
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.
2 When stooping to earth from the brightness of heaven,
Thy blood for our ransom so freely was given,
1:With joyful Hosannas, the blest of the Lord.: 1
Still love to encircle the lambs of the fold;
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;
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;
With Thy love our bosoms fill;
