Hymn 36. PM There's a power in the sun

adapted/edited/written by William W. Phelps (LDS)
1. There's a power in the sun,

And a majesty on high,

Ever showing unto man—

O behold the Lord is nigh!
2. There's a brilliance in the moon,

And a beauty in the sky,

Always telling to the world—

O behold the Lord is nigh!
3. There's a glory in the stars,

And the planets rolling by,

Shining nightly to the earth—

O behold the Lord is nigh!
4. There's a grandeur in the clouds,

And the lightning streaking by,

Thund'ring loudly in our ears—

O behold the Lord is nigh!
5. There's an image in the winds,

Singing sweetly as they fly,

To the end all flesh may know—

O behold the Lord is nigh!
6. There's a spirit, too, in man,

For to turn his hopes on high,

Whisp'ring softly to the heart—

O behold the Lord is nigh!
Morning Hymns.
Hymn 37. CM Lord in the morning thou shalt hear

Isaac Watts
1. Lord in the morning thou shalt hear

My voice ascending high:

To thee will I direct my pray'r,

To thee lift up mine eye:—
2. Up to the heav'ns where Christ has gone

To plead for all his saints,

Presenting at the Father's throne,

Our songs and our complaints.
3. Thou art a God, before whose sight,

The wicked shall not stand:

The righteous shall be thy delight

And dwell at thy right hand.
4. O may thy Spirit guide my feet,

In ways of righteousness!

Make ev'ry path of duty straight,

And plain before my face.
5. O do thou give my daily bread,—

And be my sins forgiven;

And let me in thy temple tread,

And learn from thee of heav'n.
Hymn 38. CM Once more, my soul, the rising day

Isaac Watts
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. SM See how the morning sun Pursues his shining way

Elizabeth Scott / adapted by William W. Phelps (LDS)
1. See how the morning sun

Pursues his shining way;

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 thy 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. LM My God, how endless is thy love

Isaac Watts
1. My God, how endless is thy love,

Descending like the morning dew;

Thy glorious gifts come from above,

And all thy mercies too.
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. PM Awake! for the morning is come

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


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:

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.

Thomas Ken
1. Awake, my soul, and with the sun

Thy daily course of duty run;

Shake off dull sloth, and early rise

To pay the morning sacrifice.

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;

Think how the all-seeing God, thy ways,

And all thy secret thoughts surveys.

And with the angels bear thy part;

Who all night long unwearied sing,

Glory to thee, eternal King.

May your devotion me inspire;

That I like you my age may spend,

Like you may on my God attend.

Have all day long my God in sight;

Perform like you my Maker's will;

O! may I never more do ill.
7. Glory to thee, who safe has kept,

And hast refresh'd me while I slept;

Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake,

I may of endless life partake.
8. Lord, I my vows to thee renew;

Scatter my sins as morning dew;

Guard my first spring of thought and will,

And with thyself my spirit fill.

All I design, or do or say,

That all my powers, with all their mite,

In thy soul glory may unite.

Praise him, all creatures here below:

Praise him above, ye angelic host;

Praise Father Son, and Holy Ghost.
Evening Hymns.

To calm our minds for rest,

To praise the Savior best.

To close the passing day:

Renew'd in latter days;

For truth and light, to guide us right,

In wisdom's pleasant ways.

To turn our hearts above:

For ev'ry word, and ev'ry good,

That's fill'd our souls with love.

For blessings great as ours,

And be prepar'd while angels guard

Us through our slumb'ring hours.

While life with us remains:

And then go home beyond the tomb,

Where peace forever reigns.

From cares and bus'ness free,

'Tis sweet conversing on my bed

With my own heart and thee.

And when my work is done,

Great God, my faith and hope relies

Upon thy grace alone.

I'll give mine eyes to sleep;

Thy hand in safety keeps my days,

And will my slumbers keep.
Hymn 45. LM Glory to thee, my God, this night

For all the blessings of the light:

Keep me, O keep me, King of kings,

Under the shadow of thy wing.

The sins that I this day have done;

That with the world, myself, and thee,

I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.

The grave as little as my bed;

Teach me to die, that so I may

Triumphing rise at the last day.

And with sweet sleep mine eyelids close:

Sleep, that may me more vigorous make,

To serve my God, when I awake.

My soul with heavenly thoughts supply:

Let no ill dreams disturb my rest,

No powers of darkness me molest.

His watchful station near me keep;

My heart with love celestial fill,

And guard me from the approach of ill.
7. May he celestial joys rehearse,

And thought in thought with me converse,

Or, in my stead, all the night long,

Sing to my God a grateful song.

The bliss of thy paternal care;

'Tis heaven on earth, 'tis heaven above,

To see thy face, to sing thy love.

Forever chase dark sleep away,

And hymns divine with angels sing,

Glory to thee, eternal King.

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

With humble gratitude I raise:

And fill my heart with lively praise.
2. My days unclouded as they pass,

And ev'ry onward rolling hour,

Are monuments of wonderous grace,

And witness to thy love and power.
3. And yet this thoughtless, wretched heart,

Too oft regardless of thy love,

Ungrateful, can from thee depart,

And from the path of duty rove.

Of Christ, my Lord; his name alone

I plead for pardon, gracious God,

And kind acceptance at thy throne.

With sleep refresh my feeble frame;

Safe in thy care may I repose,

And wake with praises to thy name.
Hymn 47. LM When restless on my bed I lie

Baptist W. Noel
1. When restless on my bed I lie,

Still courting sleep, which still will fly,

Then shall reflection's brighter power,

Illume the lone and midnight hour.
2. If hush'd the breeze, and calm the tide,

Soft will the stream of mem'ry glide,

And all the past, a gentle train,

Wak'd by remembrance, live again.
3. If loud the wind, the tempest high,

And darkness wraps the sullen sky,

I muse on life's tempestuous sea,

And sigh, O Lord, to come to thee.
4. Toss'd on the deep and swelling wave,

O mark my trembling soul, and save!

Give to my view that harbor near,

Where thou wilt chase each grief and fear!
Hymn 48. SM The day is past and gone

John Leland
1. The day is past and gone,

The evening shades appear;

O may we all remember well

The night of death draws near.
2. We lay our garments by,

While we retire to rest;

So death will soon disrobe us all

Of what we here possess.
3. Lord, keep us safe this night

Secure from all our fears:

May angels guard us while we sleep,

Till morning light appears.
4. And when we early rise,

And view th' unwearied sun,

May we set out to win the prize,

And after glory run.
5. And when our days are past,

And we from time remove,

O may we in thy kingdom rest,

Where all is peace and love.
Farewell Hymns.
Hymn 49. PM The gallant ship is under way

William W. Phelps (LDS)
1. The gallant ship is under way,

To bear me off to sea,

And yonder float the streamers gay,

That say she waits for me.

The seamen dip their ready oar,

As ebbing waves oft tell—

They bear me swiftly from the shore:

My native land farewell.
2. I go but not to plough the main

To ease a restless mind,

Nor do I toil on battle's plain

The victor's wreath to twine.

'Tis not for treasures that are hid

In mountain or in dell!

'Tis not for joys like these I bid

My native land farewell.
3. I go to break the fowler's snare,

To gather Israel home:

I go the name of Christ to bear

In lands and isles unknown.

And when my pilgrim feet shall tread

On land where darkness dwells,

Where light and truth have long since fled

My native land farewell.
4. I go an erring child of dust,

Ten thousand foes among;

Yet on His mighty arm I trust

That makes the feeble strong—

My sun, my shield, forever nigh

He will my fears dispel:

This hope supports me when I sigh—

My native land farewell.
5. I go devoted to his cause,

And to his will resign'd;

His presence will supply the loss

Of all I leave behind.

His promise cheers the sinking heart,

And lights the darkest cell,

To exil'd pilgrims grace imparts—

My native land farewell.
6. I go because my master calls;

He's made my duty plain—

No danger can the heart appal

When Jesus stoops to reign!

And now the vessel's side we've made;

The sails their bosoms swell:

Thy beauties in the distance fade—

My native land farewell.
