3. Hear the mountain streamlet

In the solitude,
With its ripple saying

God is ever good.
4. In the leafy tree tops,

Where no fears intrude,

Merry birds are singing

God is ever good.
5. Bring, my heart, thy tributo,

Songs of gratitude,
While all nature utters

God is ever good.

1. How beautiful the morning,

When summer days are long;
O we will rise betimes, and hear

The wild-bird's happy song-
For when the sun pours down his ray,

The bird will cease to sing;

She 'll seek the cool and silent shade,

And sit with folded wing. 2. Up in the morning early

'Tis Nature's gayest hour! While pearls of dew adorn the grass,

And fragrance fills the flowers,
Up in the morning early,

And we will bound abroad,
And fill our hearts with melody,

And raise our songs to God.

Listen to our evening prayer 1 3. May our sins be all forgiven ;

Bless the friends we love so well; Take us, when we die, to heaven, IIappy there with Thee to dwell.


1361. 88 & 7s.

Cradle Hymn. 1. Hosi, my dear, lie still and slumber,

Holy angels guard thy bed, Heavenly blessings without number

Gently falling on thy head. 2. Sleep, my babe, thy food and raiment,

House and home thy friends provide; All, without thy care or payment,

All thy wants are well supplied. 3. How much better thou 'rt attended

Than the Son of God could be, When from heaven He descended,

And became a child like thee. 4. Soft and easy is thy cradle

Coarse and hard the Saviour lay, When His birth-place was a stable,

And His softest bed was hay.
5. Blessed Babe, what glorious features,

Spotless, fair, divinely bright!
Must He dwell with brutal creatures -

How could angels bear the sight! 6. Was there nothing but a mauger

Cursed sinners could afford

To receive the heavenly Stranger?

Did they thus affront their Lord ? 7. Soft, my child—I did not chide thee,

Tho' my song might sound too hard; 'Tis thy mother sits beside thee,

And her arm shall be thy guard. 8. Yet, to read the shameful story

How the Jews abused their King;
How they served the Lord of glory,

Makes me angry while I sing.
9. See the kinder shepherds round Him,

Telling wonders from the sky;
There they sought Him, there they found Him,

With his virgin mother by. 10. See the lovely Babe a-dressing,

Lovely Infant, how He smiled!
When He wept, the mother's blessing

Soothed and hushed the holy Child. 11. Lo, He slumbers in His manger,

Where the horned oxen feed
Peace, my darling, here's no danger,

Here's no ox a-near thy bed.
12. 'Twas to save thee, child, from dying,

Save my dear from burning flame,
Bitter groans, and endless crying,

That thy blest Redeemer came.
13. Mayst thou live to know and fear Him,

Trust and love Him all Thy days!
Then go dwell for ever near Him,

See His face, and sing His praise. 14. I could give thee thousand kisses,

Hoping what I most desire;
Not a mother's fondest wishes

Can to greater joys aspire. WATTS.
