O let me not lie down to rest
"Thou know'st I love Thee, Lord !" 3 And even if with tears it be,
That this to Thee I say,
And wipe my tears away;

22 LORD, dismiss us with Thy blessing,
Fill our hearts with joy and peace; Let us each, Thy love possessing,
Triumph in redeeming grace. Oh, refresh us, Oh, refresh us,
Trav'ling through this wilderness. 2 Thanks we give and adoration
For Thy Gospel's joyful sound; May the fruits of Thy salvation
In our hearts and lives abound. Ever faithful, ever faithful
To the truth may we be found, 3 So whene'er the signal's given,
Us from earth to call away,
Glad the summons to obey,
J. Fawcett. 23
LORD, Thy blessing send us,
And from harm defend us; Lift upon us, Lord, Thy face, Filling us with light and grace. .
2 With Thy peace be near us,
Let Thy presence cheer us;
3 To the Lord in heaven
Be all glory given!
By His counsels guide, uphold you;
Till we meet! till we meet!
2 God be with you till we meet again!
'Neath His wings securely hide you;
3 God be with you till we meet again!
When life's perils thick confound you,
4 God be with you till we meet again!
Keep love's banner floating o'er you;
J. E. Rankin.
PRAISE God, from whom all blessings flow!
Praise Him, all creatures here below! Praise Him above, ye heav'nly host!
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!
LET me be Thine forever,
My gracious God and Lord; May I forsake Thee never,
Nor wander from Thy Word.
Preserve me from the mazes
Of error and distrust,
Forever with the just.
2 Lord Jesus ! bounteous Giver
Of light and life divine,
To Thee I all resign.
With blood and bitter pain;
Eternal life obtain.
3 O Holy Ghost, who pourest
Sweet peace into my heart,
Let not Thy grace depart.
Whom I by faith have known,
Make me for aye Thine own.
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.
2 Thy precious time misspent, redeem;
Each present day thy last esteem;
3 Wake, and lift up thyself, my heart,
And with the angels bear thy part,
4 All praise to Thee, who safe has kept,
And hast refreshed me while I slept:
5 Lord, I my vows to Thee renew;
Disperse my sins as morning dew;
6 Direct, control, suggest this day,
All I design, or do, or say;
