O let me not lie down to rest
Till this I know, my Savior blest,
Till I can say, by grace restored :

"Thou know'st I love Thee, Lord !" 3 And even if with tears it be,

That this to Thee I say,
Yet Thou in grace wilt look on me,

And wipe my tears away;
Yea, when but Thou who all dost know
In me canst find Thy love below,
And own me Thine, then well is me,-
My all I have in Thee.

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,
Borne on angel's wings to heaven,

Glad the summons to obey,
May we ever, may we ever
Rise and reign in endless day.

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;
Thy good Spirit be our guide,
That in Christ we may confide.

3 To the Lord in heaven

Be all glory given!
He doth grant us perfect rest,-
Let His precious name be blest!

OD be with you till we meet again!

By His counsels guide, uphold you;
With His sheep securely fold you;
God be with you till we meet again!


Till we meet! till we meet!
Till we meet at Jesus' feet;
Till we meet! till we meet!
God be with you till we meet again!

2 God be with you till we meet again!

'Neath His wings securely hide you;
Daily manna still provide you;
God be with you till we meet again!


3 God be with you till we meet again!

When life's perils thick confound you,
Put His arms unfailing round you;
God be with you till we meet again!


4 God be with you till we meet again!

Keep love's banner floating o'er you;
Smite death's threatening wave before you;
God be with you till we meet again!


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,
And I shall sing Thy praises

Forever with the just.

2 Lord Jesus ! bounteous Giver

Of light and life divine,
Thou didst my soul deliver;

To Thee I all resign.
Thou hast in mercy bought me,

With blood and bitter pain;
Let me, since Thou hast sought me,

Eternal life obtain.

3 O Holy Ghost, who pourest

Sweet peace into my heart,
And all my soul restorest,

Let not Thy grace depart.
And, while His name confessing,

Whom I by faith have known,
Grant me Thy constant blessing;

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;
Improve thy talent with due care,
For the great Day thyself prepare.

3 Wake, and lift up thyself, my heart,

And with the angels bear thy part,
Who all night long, unwearied, sing
High praise to the eternal King.

4 All praise to Thee, who safe has kept,

And hast refreshed me while I slept:
Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake,
I may of endless life partake.

5 Lord, I my vows to Thee renew;

Disperse my sins as morning dew;
Guard my first springs of thought and will,
And with Thyself my spirit fill.

6 Direct, control, suggest this day,

All I design, or do, or say;
That all my powers, with all their might,
In Thy sole glory may unite.

Th. Ken,
