A MORNING HYMN.

Dear Saviour! I have learned to know
That thou dost ever list to me;

And that, wherever I may go,

I still am always seen by thee.

O teach me Lord, what I should say,
Let truth direct my every word,
Nor let me speak throughout the day
Aught that should not by thee be heard.
Oh! keep me innocent; and free

From every thought, from every sin;
That thou, my God! mayest never see
A naughty thought my breast within.
Dear Jesus! let me be thine own!

To rise to thee my life was given:
As flowers that on the earth are sown
Shoot up and bear their sweets to heaven

THE LORD'S PRAYER.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive them that trespass against And lead us not into temptation: but deliver us from evil. Amen.

THE HAIL MARY.

"Hail Mary, full of grace! our Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus." Holy Mary mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

THE APOSTLES' CREED.

I believe in God the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ his. only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried: He descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven; sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the Holy Catholic Church; the communion of Saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and life everlasting. Amen.

THANKSGIVING FOR A NEW DAY.

I praise and adore thee, oh blessed Trinity, for having permitted me to pass the foregone night in safety. How many sinners, who like me,

lay down to rest last evening, have been called be-fore their just judge to receive the reward or punishment due to their conduct! Oh my blessed guardian angel, join me in praising our good God for having preserved me from so great a danger.

Oh, Holy Ghost! give me thy grace that I may pass through this day in such a manner as to pre pare myself to obey thy sunimons whenever it may be my turn to appear before thee. Give me peace, patience, and brotherly love; and keep me from doing or from saying anything which I could not continue to feel or to do if I were amongst thy blessed saints in heaven. Amen.

OFFERING OF THE DAY.

Oh God! I offer to thee all my thoughts, words,. and actions of this day. Accept of those that are innocent, I beseech thee, through the merits of Jesus Christ thy Son; and forgive those that are otherwise through the same Christ our Lord, who with thee and the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth world without end. Amen.

May the divine assistance remain always with us; and may the souls of the faithful departed. through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Let us bless the Lord.

Thanks be to God. Amen.
