Hymn
Now that daylight fills the sky
We lift our hearts to God on high,
That he in all we do or say
May keep us free from sin today.

Father, fill our hearts with love,
That we may seek the things above;
Extinguish thou each sinful fire,
And banish every wrong desire.

Through Jesus Christ thine only Son,
Who with the Holy Ghost and thee
Doth live and reign eternally.   Amen.
