Elliott Hymnal: LH1941 #8 (1941) Meter: Scripture: Genesis 1:3 Lyrics: 1 Father, who the light this day Out of darkness didst create, Shine upon us now, we pray, While within Thy courts we wait. Wean us from the works of night, Make us children of the light. 2 Savior, who this day didst break The dark prison of the tomb, Bid our slumb'ring souls awake, Shine thro' all their sin and gloom; Let us, from our bonds set free, Rise from sin and live to Thee. 3 Blessed Spirit, Comforter, Sent this day from Christ on high, Lord, on us Thy gifts confer, Cleanse, illumine, sanctify. All Thy fulness shed abroad; Lead us to the truth of God. Amen. Topics: Adoration Lord's Day Tune Title: FRED TIL BOD

Christ the Fountain, these the waters, Drink, O Zion’s sons and daughters; Drink and find salvation here. 3 Here our souls, by Jesus sated, More and more shall be translated Earth’s temptations far above; Freed from sin’s abhorred dominion, Soaring on angelic pinion, They shall reach the Source of love. 4 Then shall thanks and praise ascending For Thy mercies without ending Rise to Thee, O Savior blest.

O happy home, where each one serves Thee, lowly, Whatever his appointed work may be, Till ev'ry common task seems great and holy When it is done, O Lord, as unto Thee! 4 O happy home, where Thou art not forgotten When joy is overflowing, full, and free! O happy home, where ev'ry wounded spirit Is brought, O great Physician, unto Thee, Until at last, when earthly toil is ended, All meet Thee in the blessed home above, From whence Thou camest, where Thou hast ascended, Thine everlasting home of peace and love!
