MORNING PRAYER.

1. Preparation for Duty. (Psalm cviii. 2.) L. M.

1 AWAKE, my soul, and with the sun,

Thy daily stage of duty run;
Shake off dull sloth, and early rise

To pay thy morning sacrifice.
2 Redeem thy mispent moments past,

And live this day as if thy last;
Thy talents to improve take care ;

For the great day thyself prepare. 3 Let all thy converse be sincere ;

Thy conscience, as the noon-day clear;
Think how th' all-seeing God thy ways,

And all thy secret thoughts, surveys. 4 Glory to God, who safe hath kept,

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

I may of endless life partake.
5 Lord, I my vows to Thee renew;

Scatter my sins as morning dew :
Guard my first springs of thought and will,

And with Thyself my spirit fill.
6 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.
