And make my very dreams devout. 10. Praise God, from whom &c. (as before.)

MIDNIGHT HYMN.
(By Bishop Kenn.) Air, 29th Ps. Mei. Sac.
“ I call to remembrance my song in the night.com
“ I commune with mine own heart.” Ps. lxxvii. 6.
1. MY GOD, now I from sleep awake,

The sole possession of me take;
From midnight terrors me secure,

And guard my heart from thoughts impure! 2. Blest angels, while we silent lie,

You hallelujahs sing on high ;
You joyful hymn the Ever-Blest

Before the throne, and never rest! 3. I with your choir celestial join

In offering up a hymn divine ;
With you in heaven I hope to dwell,

And bid the night, and world, farewell. 4. My soul, when I shake off this dust,

Lord, in Thy arms I will entrust:
O make me Thy peculiar care;
Some mansion for my soul prepare.

Give

5. Give me a place at Thy saints' feet,

Or some fallen angel's vacant sea:
I'll strive to sing as loud as they
Who sit above in higher day.

CCCXXXVIII.

SECOND PART.
6. WHEN in the night I sleepless lie,

My soul with heavenly thoughts supply
Let no ill dreams disturb my rest,

No powers of darkness me molest.
7. May my blest Guardian while I sleep

Close to my bed his vigils keep;
Divine love into me instil ;

Stop all the avenues of ill.
8. Celestial joys to me rehearse,

And thought to thought with me converse;
Or, in my stead, all the night long

Sing to my God a grateful song ! 9. Bless'd Jesu, Thou, on heaven intent,

Whole nights hadst in devotion spent !
But I, frail creature, soon am tired,

And all my zeal is soon expired. 10. Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;

Praise Him, all ereatures here below;

Praise Him above, angelic host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

A charge to keep I have ; .
Against the God that rules the sky,
Ah! when shall I awake
Alas! and did my Saviour bleed, .
All hail the power of Jesu's name : ..
All people that on earth do dwell,
Al praise to Thee, in light array'd,
Almighty King! whose wondrous hand
A mingled sound from Calvary I hear
And am I born to die?

-
and art thou, gracious Master ! gone,
A poor way-faring man, I go,
Arise my heart, my soul arise: : -
Arise, my tenderest thoughts, arise ;
Ascribe unto the Lord, (Anthem.)
As, down in the sunless retreats of the ocean,
At God's command the morning ray (2nd Part.)
Awake my soul, and with the sun,
Awake my soul, stretch every nerve,
Awake our souls ; away our fears: -
