Hymn A&M 1 Now that the daylight fills the sky

1. Now that the daylight fills the sky,
we lift our hearts to God on high,
that he, in all we do or say
would keep us free from harm today:

2. Would guard our hearts and tongues
from strife;
from anger’s din would hide our life;
from all ill sights would turn our eyes,
would close our ears from vanities.

3. Would keep our inmost conscience pure,
our souls from folly would secure,
would bid us check the pride of sense
with due and holy abstinence.

4. So we, when this day is gone,
and night in turn is drawing on,
with conscience by the world unstained
shall praise his name for victory gained.

all praise, eternal Son, to thee,
all glory, as is ever meet,
to God the holy paraclete.

Thy conscience as the noon-day
Think how all-seeing God thy ways
And all thy secret thoughts surveys.

1. New every morning is the love
our wakening and uprising prove;
through sleep and darkness safely brought,
restored to life and power and thought.

hover around us while we pray;
new perils past, new sins forgiven,
new thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven.

3. If on our daily course our mind
be set to hallow all we find,
new treasures still, of countless price,
God will provide for sacrifice.

will furnish all we ought to ask:
room to deny ourselves; a road
to bring us daily nearer God.

fit us for perfect rest above;
and help us, this and every day,
to live more nearly as we pray.

myself anew to thee,

whate’er I speak or frame,
thy glory may I seek in all,
do all in Jesus’ Name.

thy child accept and bless;
and lead me by thy grace to-day
in paths of righteousness.


A&M 006 At thy feet, O Christ, we lay

makes us crave thine aid the more;
lest it prove a time of loss,
mark it, Saviour, with thy cross.

2. If it flow on calm and bright,
be thyself our chief delight;
if it bring unknown distress,
good is all that thou canst bless;
only, while its hours begin,
pray we, keep them clear of sin.

and in part discern our foe;
well for us, before thine eyes
all our danger open lies;
turn not from us, while we plead
thy compassion and our need.

4. Fain would we thy word embrace,
live each moment on thy grace,
all our selves to thee consign,
fold up all our wills in thine,
think and speak and do and be
simply that which pleases thee.

5. Hear us, Lord, and that right soon;
hear, and grant the choicest boon
that thy love can e’er impart,
loyal singleness of heart:
so shall this and all our days,
Christ our God, show forth thy praise.

Dayspring from on high, be near;
Daystar, in my heart, appears.

unaccompanied by thee;
joyless is the day’s return,
till thy mercy’s beams, I see,
till they inward light impart,
glad my eyes, and warm my heart.

Pierce the gloom of sin and grief!
Fill me, Radiancy Divine;
scatter all my unbelief;
more and more thyself display,
shining to the perfect day.

the appointed duties of the day,
with ready mind and active will
march on and keep my heavenly way.

and then receive me to thy bliss:
all my desires and hopes beside
are faint and cold, compared with this.

in all we do and know;

the sick, O Lord, around thee lay;

oppressed with various ills, draw near;
what if thy form we cannot see?
We know and feel that thou art here.

for some are sick, and some are sad;
and some have never loved thee well,
and some have lost the love they had;

Yet from the world they break not free;
And some have friends who give them pain,
yet have not sought a friend in thee.

for none are wholly free from sin;
And they who fain would serve thee best
are conscious most of wrong within.

thou has been troubled, tempted, tried;
thy kind but searching glance can scan
the very wounds that shame would hide.

the hours of dark may be.

I raise the hymn to thee,

the hours of dark may be.

my wearied eyelids gently steep,
be my last thought, how sweet to rest
forever on my Savior’s breast.

for without thee I cannot live;
abide with me when night is nigh,
for without thee I dare not die.

has spurned today the voice divine,
now, Lord, the gracious work begin;
let him no more lie down in sin.

dwelling in the midst of foes;
us and ours preserve from dangers;
in thine arms may we repose.
and, when life’s sad day is past,
rest with thee in heaven at last.


A&M 26 God, that madest earth and heaven

1. God, that madest earth and heaven,
darkness and light;
who the day for toil hast given,
for rest the night;
may thine angel guards defend us,
slumber sweet thy mercy send us;
holy dreams and hopes attend us,
all through the night.

2. Guard us waking, guard us sleeping,
and when we die,
may we in thy mighty keeping
all peaceful lie;
when the last dread call shall wake us,
do not thou, our God, forsake us,
but to reign in glory take us
with Thee on high.

when other helpers fail and comforts flee,
help of the helpless, O abide with me.

Little day;

what but thy grace can foil the tempter’s power?
Who, like thyself, my guide and stay can be?

ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
Where is death’s dark sting? where, grave, thy victory?

true absolution and release:

would wholly give
into his sacred charge
in whom all spirits live;

abiding in the breast;

in him to all beside.

not I, but he,
in all his power and love,
henceforth alive in me.

one Lord divine,
may I be ever his,

with thee began, with thee shall end the day.
guard thou the lips from sin, the hearts from shame,
that in this house have called upon thy Name.

turn thou for us its darkness into light;
from harm and danger keep thy children free,
for dark and light are both alike to thee.

our balm in sorrow, and our stay in strife;
then, when thy voice shall bid our conflict cease,
call us, O Lord, to thine eternal peace.

absorbs not all the heart
that gives thee glory, love, and praise,

on excellence divine;
to know that nought in man can tell
how fair thy beauties shine!

o’er thanks exalted far,
thy very greatness is a rest
to weaklings as we are;

a task beyond our powers,
we say, “A perfect God is he,
and he is fully ours.”

all glory to the Son,
all glory, Holy Ghost, to thee,

through all the world her watch is keeping

thy kingdom stands, and grows for ever,
till all thy creatures own thy sway.

shade creeps o’er wild and wood:
let us, as night is falling,
on God our Maker calling,
give thanks to him, the Giver good.

breaks forth in starlight tender
from myriad worlds unknown;
and man, this marvel seeing,
forget his selfish being
for joy of beauty not his own.

lost in the abyss of wonder;
to heaven his soul doth steal:
this life he disesteemeth,
the day it is that dreameth,
that doth from truth his vision seal.

4. Awhile his mortal blindness
may miss God’s lovingkindness
and grope in faithless strife;
but when life’s day is over,
shall death’s fair night discover
the fields of everlasting life.

Savior, be my Light.
through the hours in darkness shrouded
let me see thy face unclouded;

in this heart of mine.

earthly sounds are none,
rest in sleep and silence seeking,
let me hear thee softly speaking;
in my spirit’s ear
whisper, “I am near.”

shining through earth’s night;
voice that oft of love hast told me;
arms so strong to clasp and hold me,
thou thy watch wilt keep,
Savior, o’er my sleep.

his providence and grace.

may angels guard my head,
and through the hours of darkness keep
their watch around my bed.

since thou wilt not remove;
and in the morning let me rise
rejoicing in thy love.


A&M 37 Fast sinks the sun to rest

1. Fast sinks the sun to rest,
Fast falls the shades of night;
Fain would the weary heart
Keep love’s frail flame alight,
End the day that fading dies
With an offering of sacrifice.

2. E’en as the crucified,
Calm in the hour of death,
unto his father’s hands
Yielded his latest breath,
So my spirit would repose
Safe in God’s mighty keeping close.

Lieth my helplessness,
Thinking and caring naught
Save what he purposes,
And in utter calm abides,
Dead to self and to all besides.

But God who lives in me,
Reigning and triumphing
In love’s sweet majesty;
May he mine for ever be,
God who one is in Trinity.

bring ceaseless hymns to thee.

may bear our lower part.

and make our life a daily psalm

and songs of angels and of men
in perfect praise shall blend.

unto thee a sacrifice.

his resurrection should be shared;
and we who trust in him to save
with him are risen from the grave.

are with exceeding treasures blessed;
for all he did, and all he bare,
he gives us as our own to share.

both on this day and evermore.

from this our day of rest,
we reach the rest remaining
to spirits of the blest;
