O joy of God that comest in the morning




O joy of God, that comest
in the morning,
For thee, unsunned,
we wait and eastward gaze,
Lift on our dark
the splendours of thy dawning,
Flood all our being
in the feast of praise.


O life of God, for whom
our spirits hunger,
Except we eat and drink
indeed of thee,
With love and faith renewed
and hope grown younger
Send us out hence
thy saving health to see.


O peace of God,
that passest understanding,
Guard thou our heart
through every fretting day:
In him who is our Peace,
our wills commanding,
Direct our path
and perfect all our way.
