And wide proclaims his maker’s praise,
With ev’ry bright’ning ray.
 
2 Then would my rising soul
Of heaven’s parent sing;
And spread the truth from pole to pole,
Of Jesus my great King.
 
3 In faith I laid me down,
Beneath his guardian care;
I slept and I awoke and found,
That he was just as near.
 
4 O Lord I want to live
So humble unto thee,
That in my presence I may spend
A blest eternity.
 
5 Give me thy Spirit, then,
To guide me through this day,
That I may be upright and just,
And always watch and pray.
 
Hymn 40 • My God, how endless is thy love
HYMN 40. L. M.
 
1 My God, how endless is thy love,
Descending like the morning dew;
Thy glorious gifts come from above,
And all thy mercies too.
