O lead us along the banks of still waters,
To gladden our hearts and to sing.
 
3 Lord turn all our hearts unto thee,
To walk in the paths of virtue and wisdom,
To live in the bonds of union and peace,
And glorify thee on earth as in heaven:
O keep us unspotted and free!
 
4 O thou art the staff and the rod,
On which we can lean in ev’ry condition;
In youth and in age, or valley of death,
For raiment and food, for joy and for com fort:
So praise ye the Lord, who is God.
 
Hymn 42 • Awake, my soul, and with the sun
HYMN 42. L. M.
 
1 Awake, my soul, and with the sun
Thy daily course of duty run;
Shake off dull sloth, and early rise
To pay thy morning sacrifice.
 
2 Redeem thy mispent time that’s past;
Live this day, as if ’twere thy last;
To improve thy talents take due care;
’Gainst the great day thyself prepare.
 
3 Let all thy converse be sincere,
Thy conscience as the noon-day clear; [p. 55]
O lead us along the banks of still waters,
To gladden our hearts and to sing.
 
3 Lord turn all our hearts unto thee,
To walk in the paths of virtue and wisdom,
To live in the bonds of union and peace,
And glorify thee on earth as in heaven:
O keep us unspotted and free!
 
4 O thou art the staff and the rod,
On which we can lean in ev’ry condition;
In youth and in age, or valley of death,
For raiment and food, for joy and for comfort:
So praise ye the Lord, who is God.
