Consolation 50t

Tune: Arranged by Lucius Chapin, 1812
Lyrics: Isaac Watts, 1707
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
Once more, my soul, the rising day
Salutes thy waking eyes;
Once more, my voice, thy tribute pay
To Him that rules the skies.

Night unto night His name repeats,
The day renews the sound,
Wide as the heavíns on which He sits,
To turn the seasons round.

Dear God, let all my hours be Thine,
Whilst I enjoy the light,
Then shall my sun in smiles decline,
And bring a pleasing night.
