4 Minutes and mercies multiplied
Have made up all this day:
Minutes came quick, but mercies were
More fleet and free than they.

3 This day God was my Sun and Shield, 5 New time, new favor, and new joys

My Keeper and my Guide;

Do a new song require:

His care was on my frailty shown,
His mercies multiplied.

Till I shall praise Thee as I would,
Accept my heart's desire.

But let the incense of our prayers

The brightness of the coming night
Upon the darkness rolls;
With hopes of future glory chase
The shadows from our souls.

Slowly the bright stars, one by one,
Within the heavens shine;

Give us, O Lord, fresh hopes in heaven,
And trust in things Divine.

4 Let peace, O Lord, Thy peace, O God, Upon our souls descend;

From midnight fears and perils, Thou

Our trembling hearts defend:
Give us a respite from our toil,

Calm and subdue our woes;
Through the long day we labor, Lord,
O give us now repose.

Adelaide A. Procter, 1862; verse 4, line 7, alt.

The white-robed harpers of the sky
