2 Thou spread’st the curtain of the night;
Thine angels guard my sleeping hours;
The rising sun returns his light,
And thou awakens all my pow’rs.
 
3 I yield myself to thy command;
To thee devote my nights and days;
Such cheering blessings from thy hand,
Demand my grateful songs of praise:
 
4 Demand my pray’r, demand my heart,
From hour to hour; from day to day:
Hosanna! God will do his part,
For he will hear, when I do pray.
 
Hymn 41 • Awake! for the morning is come
HYMN 41. P. M.
 
1 Awake! for the morning is come:
Rejoice in the Lord, and trust in his mercy,
And pray unto him, in meekness and love,
For knowledge and health, and all his good  blessings,
To comfort and happify home.
 
2 O Lord, thou good Shepherd and King—
We want, through the day, to feed in thy  pastures,
And feast on thy bounteous goodness and  grace: [p. 54]
