Peonies in a Crock with Is your life a channel of blessing? and Come, my soul, thou must be waking

Is your life a channel of blessing?
Is the love of God flowing thro’ you?
Are you telling the lost of the Savior?
Are you ready His service to do?

Is your life a channel of blessing?
Are you burdened for those that are lost?
Have you urged upon those who are straying,
The Savior who died on the cross?

Is your life a channel of blessing?
Is it daily telling for Him?
Have you spoken the word of salvation
To those who are dying in sin?

We cannot be channels of blessing
If our lives are not free from all sin;
We will barriers be and a hindrance
To those we are trying to win.

Make me a channel of blessing today,
Make me a channel of blessing, I pray;
My life possessing, my service blessing,
Make me a channel of blessing today.

H. G. Smyth

Come, my soul, thou must be waking.
Now is breaking
  O’er the earth another day:
Come, to Him Who made this splendour
See thou render
  All thy feeble strength can pay.

Gladly hail the sun returning,
Ready burning
  Be the incense of thy powers;
For the night is safely ended,
God hath tended
  With His care thy helpless hours.

Pray that He may prosper ever
Each endeavour,
  When thine aim is good and true;
And that He may ever thwart thee,
And convert thee,
  When thou evil wouldst pursue.

Think that He thy ways beholdeth;
He unfoldeth
  Every fault that lurks within;
He the hidden shame glossed over
Can discover,
  And discern each deed of sin.

Mayest thou on life’s last morrow,
Free from sorrow,
  Pass away in slumber sweet;
And, released from death’s dark sadness,
Rise in gladness
  That far brighter Sun to greet.

Only God’s free gifts abuse not,
Light refuse not,
  But His Spirit’s voice obey;
Thou with Him shalt dwell, beholding
Light enfolding
  All things in unclouded day.

F. R. L. Canitz Tr. Henry J. Buckoll
