2 Soon as the evening shades prevail, 3 What though in solemn silence all

The moon takes up the wondrous tale, Move round this dark terrestrial ball; And nightly to the listening earth What though no real voice nor sound Repeats the story of her birth;

Amidst their radiant orbs be found; Whilst all the stars that round her burn, In reason's ear they all rejoice, And all the planets in their turn, And utter forth a glorious voice; Confirm the tidings as they roll,

For ever singing as they shine: And spread the truth from pole to pole. “The Hand that made us is divine."

ALL THY WORKS, O HEAVENLY FATHER.

83. & 7s. D.

Bost.

[graphic]

Shall not I, Thy child, much rather Sing Thy praise and do Thy will ?
Else I might have sat in blindness, Bow-ing down to wood and stone.
And Thy gate is straight and narrow, Ver - y nar - row is the way.

[ocr errors]

Hith-er - to Thy hand hath led me, And bath brought me on my way;

To Thy font my parents brought me, Ere Thy ten - der love I knew; Thou who gavest Thy Son to save me, Send Thy Ho - ly Spir - it down;

Thou hast clothed me, Thou hast fed me, Thou hast blest me every day.
And Thy min - is-ter has taught me, What to fee and what to do.
Make me do as Thou wouldst have me, Make me more and more Thine own! A-men.

Our only Lord to bless Him.-REF.
