MORNING SONG




See how the morning sun
Pursues his shining way;
And wide proclaims his maker's praise,
With every brightening ray.


Then would my rising soul
Of heaven's parent sing;
And spread the truth from pole to pole,
Of Jesus my great King.


In faith I laid me down,
Beneath his guardian care;
I slept and I awoke and found,
That he was just as near.


O Lord I want to live
So humble unto thee,
That in thy presence I may spend
A blest eternity.


Give me thy Spirit, then,
To guide me through this day,
That I may be upright and just,
And always watch and pray.


---Alternative verses---


Thus would my rising soul,
Its heavenly Parent sing,
And to its great original
The humble tribute bring.


Serene I laid me down,
Beneath His guardian care;
I slept, and I awoke, and found
My kind Preserver near.


My life I would anew
Devote, O Lord, to thee;
And in Thy service I would spend
A long eternity.
