In Preparation for the Lord’s Day: Morning & Evening Prayers

Saturday··2018·03·03
Morning PrayerTallis Canon Awake, my soul, and with the sun thy daily stage of duty run; shake off dull sloth, and joyful rise, to pay thy morning sacrifice. Lord, I my vows to Thee renew. Disperse my sins as morning dew; guard my first springs of thought and will; and with Thyself my spirit fill. Direct, control, suggest, this day, all I design, or do, or say, that all my pow’rs, with all their might, in Thy sole glory may unite. Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow; praise Him, all creatures here below; praise Him above, ye heavenly host; praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. —Hymns to the Living God (Religious Affections Ministries, 2017). Evening Prayer All praise to Thee, my God, this night, for all the blessings of the light. Keep me, O keep me, King of kings, beneath Thine own almighty wings. Forgive me, Lord, for Thy dear Son, the ill that I this day have done, that with the world, myself, and Thee, I, ere I sleep, at peace may be. O may my soul on Thee repose, and may sweet sleep mine eyelids close; sleep, that may me more vig’rous make, to serve my God, when I awake. Praise God, from whom all blessings flow; praise Him all creatures here below; praise Him above, ye heav’nly host, praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
