Seite 178 - Wake and lift up thyself, my heart, And with the angels bear thy part, Who all night long unwearied sing High praise to the Eternal King.
Seite 180 - 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 179 - Lord, I my vows to Thee renew ; Disperse my sins as morning dew ; Guard my first springs of thought and will, And with Thyself my spirit fill. Direct, control, suggest this day All I design, or do, or say ; That all my powers, with all their might, In Thy sole glory may unite. 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 - 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.
Seite 177 - AWAKE, my soul, and with the sun Thy daily stage of duty run ; Shake off dull sloth, and joyful rise To pay thy morning sacrifice.

Seite 182 - 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 181 - 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 Oh, when shall I, in endless day, For ever chase dark sleep away...
Seite 181 - O may my Guardian while I sleep, Close to my bed his vigils keep, His love angelical instil, Stop all the avenues of ill. 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.
Seite 178 - I wake, I wake, ye heavenly choir : May your devotion me inspire, That I, like you, my age may spend, Like you, may on my God attend. May I, like you, in God delight, Have all day long my God in sight ; Perform like you my Maker's will...
