938. 7s. M. Episcopal Coll. Morning Hymn.
1 Now, the shades of night are gone;
Now the morning light comes on;
Lord, may we be thine to-day,
Drive the shades of sin away.
2 Fill our souls with heavenly light,
Banish doubt, and clear our sight;
In thy service, Lord, to-day,
May we stand, and watch and pray.
3 Keep our haughty passions bound;
Save us from our foes around;
Going out and coming in,
Keep us safe from every sin.
4 When our work of life is past,
O, receive us then at last;
Night and sin will be no more,
When we reach the heavenly shore.
