Hymn/Song Information

O God my gracious God to thee my morning




O God, my gracious God, to thee
my morning pray'rs shall offered be;
For thee my thirsty soul doth pant:
My fainting flesh implores thy grace,
within the dry and barren place,
Where I refreshing waters want.


O to my longing eyes once more
that view of glorious pow'r restore
Which thy majestic house displays:
Because to me thy wondrous love
than life itself does dearer prove,
My lips shall always speak thy praise.


My life, while I that life enjoy,
in blessing God I will employ,
With lifted hands adore his Name
My soul's content shall be as great
as theirs who choicest dainties eat,
While 1 with joy his praise proclaim.


When down I lie sweet sleep to find,
thou, Lord, art present to my mind;
And when I wake in dead of night:
Because thou still dost succor bring,
beneath the shadow of thy wing
I rest with safety and delight.


My soul, when foes would me devou'r,
cleaves fast to thee, whose matchless pow'r
In her support is daily shown:
But those the righteous Lord Shall slay
that my destruction wish, and they
That seek my life shall lose their own.


They by untimely ends shall die,
their flesh a prey to foxes lie;
But God shall fill the king with joy:
Who thee confess shall still rejoice,
Whilst the false tongue, and lying voice
Thou, Lord shalt silence and destroy.


---Alternative verses---


O God, my gracious God, to thee
my early pray'rs shall offered be;
For thee my thirsty soul doth pant:
My fainting flesh implores thy grace,
within the dry and barren place,
Where I refreshing waters want.
