Marriage. O PERFECT Love, all human thought tran
scending, Lowly we kneel in prayer before Thy throne, That theirs may be the love which knows no ending,
Whom Thou for evermore dost join in one. 2. O perfect Life, be Thou their full assurance
Of tender charity and steadfast faith,
With childlike trust that fears nor pain nor death. 3. Grant them the joy which brightens earthly sorrow,
Grant them the peace which calms all earthly strife; And to life's day the glorious unknown morrow That dawns upon eternal love and life.
184.108.40.206. 1. ETERNAL Love, whose law doth sway
The worlds in ordered course,
With sacred force ;
2. To Thee our waiting hearts we lift,
This solemn, joyful hour,
For marriage dower.
That bind two souls in one ;
Thy heaven begun.
4. O hallow with Thy presence now
This sacrament of love;
Strength from above.
Of outward life may roam,
Shall light the home. Ella $. Armitage.
Morning Hymns. 711.
Awake, my Soul.
Thy daily stage of duty run :
To pay the morning sacrifice.
And with the angels bear thy part,
High praise to the eternal King.
And hast refreshed me while I slept :
I may of endless light partake.
Scatter my sins as morning dew ;
And with Thyself my spirit fill.
All I design, or do, or say,
6. Praise God, from whon all blessings flow :
Praise Him, all creatures here below!
T. Ken, 1637.
The Gift of Light.
We thank Thee for Thy gift of light:
We seem to find Thee now more nigh.
Fresh force to do our daily part ;
Throughout the day to serve Thee more.
Oft what we would we cannot do ;
But on the soul thick midnight lies.
Canst make our darkened hearts Thine own :
Great dawn of God! we cry for Thee !
Praise Him through time, till time shall end ;
Francis Turner Palgrave.
The Daily Opportunity.
O TIMELY happy, timely wise,
Hearts that with rising morn arise !
Eyes that the beam celestial view,
Which evermore makes all things new.
Our wakening and uprising prove ;
Restored to life, and power, and thought.
Hover around us while we pray ;
New thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven.
Be set to hallow all we find,
God will provide for sacrifice.
As more of heaven in each we see;
Shall dawn on every cross and care.
Will furnish all we need to ask ;
To bring us daily nearer God.
Fit us for perfect rest above ;

1. For the dear love that kept us through the night,
And gave our senses to sleep's gentle sway,
For the new miracle of dawning light,
We thank Thee, () our God !
With its full tide to strengthen and to bless-
We praise Thee, O our God !
Tells of Thy power, and glory. So would we,
Adore Thee, O our God ! 4. Thou know'st our needs, Thy fulness will supply ;
Οι blindness,-let Thy hand still lead us on,
W. H. Burleigh.
Early Morning Hymn.
Breaks on the morning air ;
We meet to offer prayer.
Dew of our souls, descend ;
O Lord, Thy Spirit send !
Before the fight begins,
To guard us from our sins.
