5 So shall it be at last, in that bright morning,

When the soul waketh, and life's shadows flee;
O in that hour, fairer than daylight dawning,
Shall rise the glorious thought-I am with Thee. Amen.

4 So, when that morn of endless light is waking,

And shades of evil from its splendors flee,
Safe may we rise, this earth's dark vale forsaking,

Through all the long bright day to dwell with Thee.
5 Be this by Thee, O God thrice holy, granted,

O Father, Son, and Spirit, ever blest;
Whose glory by the heaven and earth is chanted,
Whose name by men and angels is confessed. Amen.

ST. GREGORY THE GREAT. Tr. Anon,

[merged small][merged small][merged small][ocr errors][merged small]

(d=112 ) When,streaming from the eastern skies, The morn-ing light sa-lutes mine eyes,

0 Sun

of Right-eous-ness di -vine, On me with beams of mer - cy shine;

Chase the dark shades of night away, And turn my dark-ness in - to day. A-men.

2 As every day, Thy mercy spares,

Will bring its trials and its cares,
O Saviour, till my life shall end,
Be Thou my Counselor and Friend;
Teach me Thy precepts all divine,
And be Thy great example mine.

3 When each day's scenes and labors close,

And wearied nature seeks repose,
With pardoning mercy richly blest,
Guard me, my Saviour, while I rest;
And as each morning's sun shall rise,
Oh, lead me onward to the skies.

4 And at my life's last setting sun,

My conflicts o'er, my labors done,
Jesus, Thy heavenly radiance shed,
To cheer and bless my dying bed;
Then from death's gloom my spirit raise,
To see Thy face and sing Thy praise. Amen.
