1 AND now another day is gone,
I'll sing my Maker's praise;
His providence and grace. 2 But how my childhood runs to waste!
My sins how great their sum!
And strength for days to come. 3 I lay my body down to sleep;
Let angels guard my head,
Their watch around my bed.
Since thou wilt not remove;
Rejoicing in thy love.
1 This is the day when Christ arose
So early from the dead: Why should I keep my eyelids clos'd,
And waste my hours in bed? 2 This is the day when Jesus broke
The pow'r of death and hell; And shall I still wear Satan's yoke,
And love my sins so well? 3 To-day with pleasure Christians meet,
To pray and hear thy word;
To learn thy will, O Lord! 4 I'll leave my sport, to read and pray,
And so prepare for heav'n:
The best of all the sev'n!
1 Lord, how delightful 'tis to see
A whole assembly worship thee!
They hear of heav'n and learn the way. 2 I have been there, and still would go,
'Tis like a little heav'n below; Not all my pleasure and my play
Shall tempt me to forget this day. 3 O write upon my mem’ry, Lord!
The texts and doctrines of thy word;
But love thee better than before. 4 With thoughts of Christ, and things divine,
Fill up this foolish heart of mine;
THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, OUT OF THE OLD TESTAMENT, PUT INTO SHORT RHYME FOR CHILDREN.
Exodus, xx. 1. Thou shalt not have more gods but me. 2. Before no idol bow thy knee. 3. Take not the name of God in vain. 4. Nor dare the sabbath-day profane. 5. Give both thy parents honour due. 6. Take heed that you no murder do. 7. Abstain from words and deeds unclean. 8. Nor steal, though thou art poor and
mean. 9. Nor make a wilful lie nor love it. 10. What is thy neighbour's dare not covet.
THE SUM OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, OUT OF THE NEW
Matt. xxii. 37.
OUR SAVIOUR'S GOLDEN RULE.
Matt. vii. 12.
DUTY TO GOD AND YOUR NEIGHBOUR.
Love God with all your soul and strength,
With all your heart and mind; And love your neighbour as yourself,
Be faithful, just, and kind.
Another deal with you;
Be sure you never do.
Out of my Book of HYMNS I have here added the Hosan
NA, and Glory to the FATHER, &c. to be sung at the end of any of these Songs, according to the direction of Parents or Governors.
THE HOSANNA; OR, SALVATION ASCRIBED TO CHRIST.
HOSANNA to king David's Son!
