Where storms ne'er beat, nor billows roar,

Beneath thy peaceful reign.

HYMN 169.
(L. M. CAREY.)

A morning hymn.
1 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 talents to improve take care;

For the great day thyself prepare;
Redeem thy mispent moments past,

And live this day as 'twere thy last. 3 Glory to God, who safe hath kept,

And hath refresh'd me, while I slept ;
Grant, Lord! when I from death awake,

I may of endless life partake.
4 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. 5 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow !

Praise Him, all creatures here below!
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host !
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost !

HYMN 170.
(L. M. BRENTWOOD.)

An evening hymn.
1 GLORY to Thee, my God! this night,

For all the blessings of the light;

Keep me, oh! keep me, King of kings,

Beneatb thine owii Almighty wings. 2 Forgive me, Lord ! through thy dear Son,

The sins that I this day have done;
That with the world, myself, and Thee,

I, ere I sleep, at peace may be. 3 Teach me to live, that I may may dread

The grave, as little as my bed;
Teach me to die, that so I may

With joy behold the judgment-day, 4 Oh! may my soul on Thee repose,

And peaceful sleep my eyelids close;
Sleep that may me more active make

To serve my God, when I awake ! 5 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow

Praise Him, all creatures here below!
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host !
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!

APPENDIX.

HYMN 171.
(L. M. HONITON.)

For Christmas-day.
1 HE, who the earth's foundation laid,

Is now a little infant made;
The Son of God, who framed the skies,

Now humbly in a manger lies.
2 The Eternal and Almighty God
Assumes our

sinful* Alesh” and blood : Stoopsdown from heaven with man to dwell,

Is God with us,t Emmanuel.
3 To purchase pardon, hope, and rest,

He bares to wrath his sinless breast,
And opens through his woes, the way,

To life and everlasting day. 4 For us these wonders He hath wrought,

To mark his love, surpassing thought;
Oh ! let us all unite and sing
Praise to our Saviour, God, and King.

Hymn 172.
(P. M. SIMEON.)

Jesus the deliverer of his people.
1 COME, Thou long expected Jesus !

Born to set thy people free :
From our sins and fears release us,
Let us find our rest in Thee.

* Rom. viii. 3. + Matt. i, 23.

2 Israel's Strength and Consolation,

Hope of all the earth Thou art : Fond desire of every nation,

Joy of every contrite heart! 3 Come, thy children to deliver,

Born a Child, and yet a King:
Come to reign in us for ever,

Now thy gracious kingdom bring. 4 By thine own Eternal Spirit,

Rule in all our hearts alone;
By thine all-sufficient merit

Raise us to thy glorious throne.

HYMN 173.
(C. M. MESSIAH.)

For Christmas-day. 1 O SAVIOUR! whom this holy morn

Gave to our world below;
To wandering and to labour born,

To weakness and to woe :2 Emmanuel ! who, by every grief,

By each temptation tried,
Hast lived to yield our wants relief,

And, to redeem us, died !
3 If, gaily cloth’d and proudly fed,

In careless ease we dwell;
Remind us of thy manger-bed,

And lowly cottage-cell.
4 If, press'd by penury severe,

In envious want we pine,

May conscience whisper in our ear,
A

poorer lot was thine!
5 From all the viewless snares of sin,

Preserve us firm and free;
As Thou like us hast tempted been,

May we rejoice with Thee,

HYMN 174.
(P. M. WALTHAM.)

Jesus humbled and exalted for sinners. 1 LORD of mercy and of might!

Of mankind the life and light!
Master ! Teacher ! Infinite !

Jesus! hear and save, 2 Who, when sin's primeval doom

Gave creation to the tonab,
Didst not scorn the Virgin's womb;

Jesus! hear and save. 3 Mighty God! Redeemer mild !

Humbled to a mortal child !
Captive, beaten, bound, reviled!

Jesus! hear and save. 4 Throned above celestial things,

Borne aloft on angels' wings,
Lord of lords! and King of kings!

Jesus ! hear and save. 5 Soon to come to earth again,

Judge of angels and of men !
Hear us now, and hear us then,

Jesus! hear and save.
