Now the dew is on the
grass, Now the lake is clear as glass, Now the earth, refreshed with showers, Yields her sweetest loveliest flowers ; Now the birds are on the wing, Now their cheeriest songs they sing ; Listen to the whispering breeze, Listen to the rustling trees; Nature bids thee, man, awake, Nature for thy teacher take; Up, and use the precious time, Lo! Creation's in its prime.
God, who gave thee thy domain,
“ The night cometh.”
Lo! another day has ended,
, Housed, apparelled, guarded, fed us !
O how great has been our blindness!
Great has been our provocation
Had we loved and served him ever
Night is coming-Woe unto us!
Strength and hope begin to fail us,
Let us quickly make confession
Father, in the name of Jesus,
Keep us under thy protection
