To turn our hearts above:
For ev’ry word, and ev’ry good,
That’s fill’d our souls with love.
 
5 O let us raise a holier strain,
For blessings great as ours,
And be prepar’d while angels guard
Us through our slumb’ring hours.
 
6 O may we sleep and wake in joy,
While life with us remains:
And then go home beyond the tomb,
Where peace forever reigns.

I am forever thine:
I fear before thee all the day,
O may I never sin.
 
2 And while I rest my weary head,
From cares and bus’ness free,
’Tis sweet conversing on my bed
With my own heart and thee.
 
3 I pay this evening sacrifice;
And when my work is done, [p. 58]
