Seite 178 - Forgive me, Lord, for Thy dear Son, The ill that I this day have done ; That with the world, myself, and Thee, I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.
Seite 178 - Teach me to live, that I may dread The grave as little as my bed; Teach me to die, that so I may Rise glorious at the awful day. O may my soul on Thee repose, And may sweet sleep mine eyelids close, Sleep, that may me more vigorous make To serve my God when I awake. When in the night I sleepless lie, My soul with heavenly thoughts supply ; Let no ill dreams disturb my rest, No powers of darkness me molest.
Seite 179 - May he celestial joy rehearse, And thought to thought with me converse, Or in my stead, all the night long, Sing to my God a grateful song. 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.
Seite 180 - Before the throne, and never rest, I with your choir celestial join, In offering up a hymn divine : With you in heaven I hope to dwell, And bid the night and world farewell.
Seite 47 - Give me the Priest these graces shall possess — Of an Ambassador the just address. A Father's tenderness, a Shepherd's care, A Leader's courage, which the cross can bear ; A Ruler's awe, a Watchman's wakeful eye, A Pilot's skill, the helm in storms to ply ; A Fisher's patience, and a Labourer's toil, A Guide's dexterity to disembroil ; A Prophet's inspiration from above, A Teacher's knowledge, and a Saviour's love.
Seite 179 - When in the night I sleepless lie, My soul with heavenly thoughts supply : Let no ill dreams disturb my rest, No powers of darkness me molest. 6 O! when shall I, in endless day, For ever chase dark sleep away...
Seite 47 - A fisher's patience, and a labourer's toil, A guide's dexterity to disembroil ; A prophet's inspiration from above, A teacher's knowledge, and a Saviour's love. Give me the priest, a light upon a hill, Whose rays his whole circumference can fill ; In God's own word and sacred learning versed, Deep in the study of the heart immersed ; Who in sick souls can the disease descry, And wisely fit restoratives apply; To beatific pastures leads his sheep, Watchful from hellish wolves his fold to keep...
Seite 181 - Who light Thy dwelling-place hast made ; A boundless ocean of bright beams From Thy all-glorious Godhead streams. The Sun in its meridian height Is very darkness in Thy sight ! My soul...
Seite 178 - But, though sleep o'er my frailty reigns, Let it not hold me long in chains : And now and then let loose my heart, Till it an Hallelujah dart.
Seite 141 - ... terrors lives exempt ; You ne'er, with all your skill, Could souls immortal kill : You need not me and world divide, I long ago the world denied. I have prevented all your force, Which from my friends might me divorce — To friends, though truly dear, My heart dares not adhere : No perfect friend but God I know, For God I all the rest forego. Should you invade me, armed with pain, And make me numerous deaths sustain, My will, to God resigned, Sweet ease in God will find ; God's love will all...
