• Thou shalt take thy rest in safety.'
Now we lay us down to rest.
Sweet it is to trust in Thee.
Dwelling in the midst of foes,
In Thine arms may we repose,
He that keepeth thee will not slumber.' mp
TOW God be with us, for the night is closing;
The light and darkness are of His disposing,
For He will shield us.
Till morning cometh, watch, Protector, o'er us;
Thine angels send us.
Our earliest thoughts be Thine when morning wakes us;
Thy praise pursuing.
Save Thee, O Father, who Thine own hast made us;
Who seek Thee only.
Thy will be done on earth as 't is in heaven;
Us now and ever.
• The Lord God giveth them light : and they shall reign for ever and ever.'
THE radiant morn hath passed away,
And spent too soon her golden store;
Creep on once more.
Its glorious noon how quickly past !
Safe home at last.
Uplift our hearts to realms on high:
Beyond the sky,
In undivided empire reign,
Their deathless strain ;
And evening shadows never fall;
Art Lord of all.
mp THE Sreeps on the night;
'I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for Thou, Lord, only makest me
dwell in safety. NHE sun declines; o'er land and sea mp 2 Forgive the wrong this day we've done,
Or thought, or said ; The twinkling stars come one by one
Each moment with its good or ill
To Thee has fled;
Will we confide;
Thy benediction now bestow
‘At the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice.'
Into His sacred charge
In whom all spirits live,
4 So now beneath His eye
Would calmly restp 2 As Christ, upon the cross
Without a wish or thought
Abiding in the breast,
Save that His will be done
Dead to herself, and dead
In Him to all beside.
Not I, but He
