AS THE SUN DOTH DAILY RISE.

"Innocents." 7s.

KING ALFRED, (849-901)
TR. BY EARL NELSON,) 1823-

), 1864.

1. As the sun doth daily rise, Brightening all the morning skies, 2. Day by day pro-vide us food, For from Thee come all things good; 3. Be our Guard in sin and strife, Be the Lead-er of our life;

So, to Thee, with one ac-cord
Strength un-to our souls af-ford
Lest like sheep we stray a-broad,

4 Quickened by the Spirit's grace,
All Thy holy will to trace,
While we daily search Thy Word,
Wisdom true impart, O Lord!

5 When the sun withdraws his light, When we seek our beds at night, Thou, by sleepless hosts adored, Hear the prayer of faith, O Lord.

JAMES MONTGOMERY, (1771–1854) 1819.

1 Songs of praise the angels sang, Heaven with alleluias rang, When Jehovah's work begun, When He spake and it was done.

Ascribed to Thibaut, (1201-1258

Lift we up our hearts, O Lord! From Thy living Bread, O Lord! Stay our wayward feet, O Lord! A-men.

2 Songs of praise awoke the morn When the Prince of Peace was born, Songs of praise arose when He Captive led captivity.

SONGS OF PRAISE THE ANGELS SANG.

7s.

3 Heaven and earth must pass away,
Songs of praise shall crown that day,
God will make new heavens and earth,
Songs of praise shall hail their birth.

6 When the hours are dark and drear,
When the Tempter lurketh near,
By Thy strengthening grace outpoured,
Save the tempted ones, O Lord.

7 Praise we with the heavenly host, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; Thee, would we with one accord, Praise and magnify, O Lord.

4 And shall man alone be dumb
Till that glorious kingdom come?
No; the Church delights to raise
Psalms and hymns and songs of praise.

5 Saints below, with heart and voice, Still in songs of praise rejoice, Learning here, by faith and love, Songs of praise to sing above.

6 Borne upon their latest breath,
Songs of praise shall conquer death.
Then, amidst eternal joy,
Songs of praise their powers employ.

O let Thy blessing fall;

We pray for grace to love them well,
But Thee beyond them all.

To Thee for precious gifts of grace Thy ransomed people pray.

For strength to do Thy will

On this the best of days;
With happy hearts and voices bring

3 With prayer and praise, O Lord,
We worship in Thy fear;
For here, Thou dost Thy name record;
Thine eyes and heart are here.

Who in Thy temple wait,
This as the house of God shall find,
And this as heaven's own gate.

Where is death's sting? where, grave, thy victory?

SUN OF MY SOUL.
"Hursley." L. M.
Franz Josef Haydn, (1732-1809) 1792.
Arr. by William Henry Monk, (1823-1889) 1861.

1.

Sun of my soul, Thou Savior dear, It is not night if Thou be near; 2. When the soft dews of kind-ly sleep My wearied eyelids gently steep, A-bide with me from morn till eve, For with-out Thee I can - not live;

3.

O may no earth-born cloud arise To hide Thee from Thy servant's eyes.
Be my last thought: how sweet to rest, For ever on my Sa-vior's breast.
Abide with me when night is nigh, For without Thee I dare not die.
