Soon as the evening shades prevail, The moon takes up the wondrous tale, And nightly to the listening earth Repeats the story of her birth; Whilst all the stars that round her burn, And all the planets in their turn, Confirm the tidings as they roll, And spread the truth from pole to pole.
What though, in solemn silence all Move round this dark terrestrial ball; What though no real voice nor sound Amidst their radiant orbs be found; In reason's ear they all rejoice, And utter forth a glorious voice; For ever singing, as they shine, " The hand that made us is divine."
J. Addison, 1712
2 Light, and love, and life are Thine,
Great Creator of all good; r Fill our souls with light divine; Give us with our daily food Blessings from Thy heavenly store, Blessings rich for evermore.
3 Graft within our heart of hearts Love undying for Thy name; Bid us ere the day departs
Spread afar our Maker's fame: Young and old together bless, Clothe our souls with righteousness.
4 Full of years, and full of peace, May our life on earth be blest; When our trials here shall cease,
And at last we sink to rest, Fountain of eternal love, Call us to our home above.
Rev. Godfrey Thring, 1862
