PART THE THIRD.
HYMNS FOR NATURAL AND SACRED
I. DAY AND NIGHT.
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.
Thy precious time mis-spent redeem ; Each present day thy last esteem ; Improve thy talent with due care ; For the great day thyself prepare.
In conversation be sincere ; Keep conscience as the noontide clear; Think how All-seeing God thy ways And all thy secret thoughts surveys.
By influence of the light divine Let thy own light to others shine ; Reflect all Heaven's propitious rays, In ardent love and cheerful praise.
