L. M. 373
I Prayer is appointed to convey
The blessings < lod designs to give:
Long as they live should Christians pray,
They learn to pray when first they live.
2 If pain afflict, or wrongs oppress;
If cares distract, or fairs dismay;
If guilt deject; if sin distress;—
In every case, still watch and pray.
3 'Tis prayer supports the soul that's weak :
Thf nigh thought be broken,language lame,
Pray if thou canst, or canst not speak;
But prav with faith in Jesus' name.
4 Depend on him; thou canst not fail;
Make all thy wants ami wishes known:
Fear not; his merits must prevail ;
A-k but in faith, it shall be done.
A Morning Prayer.
i Awake, my soul, and with the sun
Thy daily stage of fluty run;
Shake off dull sloth, and early rise
To pay thy morning sacrifice.
2 Wake, and lift up thyself, my heart,
And with the angels bear thy part;
Who all night long unwearied sing
High praises to th' eternal King.
3 Glory to thee, who safe hast kept,
And hast refreshed me while I slept:
Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake,
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.
