Praise Him above, ye heavenly
host : Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. 217. Evening Hymn.
C.M. 1 from the altar of
My evening sacrifice.
Awake, my heart and tongue :
Break forth into a song.
My keeper and my guide;
His mercies multiplied.
Have made up all this day :
More fleet and free than they.
Do a new song require :
Has added to my store,
When time shall be no more.
Thy gifts are every evening new,
Gently distil, like early dew.
Great Guardian of my sleeping hours !
And quickens all my drowsy powers.
To Thee I consecrate my days;
V. LIFE – ITS DUTIES, ETC. 219. The Pure in Heart.
For they shall see our God;
Their soul is His abode.
He doth Himself impart;
Chooseth the pure in heart. 220. The Pillar of Fire and of Cloud. L.M.D. 1 WHEN Israel, of the Lord beloved,
Out from the land of bondage came,
Her father's God before her moved,
Returned the fiery column's glow.
When brightly shines the prosperous day,
A burning and a shining light. 221.
Heavenly Joy on Earth. S.M. 1 COME ye that love the Lord,
And let your joys be known ;
And thus surround His throne. 2 The sorrows of the mind
Be banished from this place ;
To make our pleasures less. 3 The awful God is ours,
Our Father and our love;
To carry us above.
4 There shall we see His face,
And never, never sin;
Drink endless pleasures in. ö Yes, and before we rise
To that immortal state,
Should constant joy create. 6 Then let our songs abound,
And every tear be dry;
To fairer worlds on high. 222
Grateful Review of Life. C.M. 1 WHEN all Thy mercies, O my God,
In wonder, love, and praise.
Thy tender care bestowed,
From whom those comforts flowed.
3 When in the slippery paths of youth,
With heedless steps I ran,
And led me up to man.
4 When worn with sickness, oft hast Thou
With health renewed my face;
Revived my soul with grace.
My daily thanks employ;
That tastes those gifts with joy. 6 Through every period of
The glorious theme renew. 223.
"Walk in the Light." C.M. 1 WALK in the light! so shalt thou know
That fellowship of love,
Who reigns in light above.
Shall ne'er defile again ;
Shall cleanse from every stain.
Thy heart made truly His,
In whom no darkness is.
