And let me in thy temple tread,
And learn from thee of heav’n.
 
Hymn 38 • Once more, my soul, the rising day
HYMN 38. C. M.
 
1 Once more, my soul, the rising day
Salutes my waking eyes;
And let my heart its tribute pay,
To him that rules the skies.
 
2 Night unto night his name repeats,
And day renews the sound,
Wide as the heavens on which he sits,
To turn the seasons round.
 
3 ’Tis he supports my mortal frame:
My tongue shall sing his praise;
And I will glory in his name
While he extends my days.
 
4 And when my mortal course is done,
And I must yield my breath;
O may my soul, bright as the sun,
Shine o’er the night of death.
 
Hymn 39 • See how the morning sun
HYMN 39. S. M.
 
1 See how the morning sun
Pursues his shining way; [p. 52]
And let me in thy temple tread,
And learn from thee of heav’n.
