Rules for Daily Life

Rules for Daily Life

Begin the day with God
Kneel dow to Him in prayer;
Lift up thy heart to His abode.
And seek His love to share.

Open the book of God
And read a portion there;
That it may hallow all thy thoughts,
And sweeten all thy care.

Go through the day with God
Whate’er thy work may be;
Where’er thou art–at home, abroad
He still is ner to thee.

Converse in mind with God
Thy spirit heavenward raise:
Acknowledge every good bestowed,
And offer grateful praise.

Conclude the day with God
Thy sins to Him confess;
Trust in the Lord’s atoning blood,
And plead His righteousness.

Lie down at night with God
Who gives His servants sleep;
And when thou tread’st the vale of death,
He will thee guard and keep.
