Hymn/Song Information

A MORNING HYMN




To thee let my first offerings rise,
Whose sun creates the day;
Swift as his gladdening influence flies,
And spotless as his ray.


This day thy favoring hand be nigh,
So oft vouchsafed before;
Still my it lead, protect, supply,
And I that hand adore.


If bliss thy providence impart,
For which resigned I pray,
Give me to feel the grateful heart,
And without guilt be gay.


Affliction should thy love intend
As vice or folly's cure,
Patient to gain that gracious end,
May I the means endure.


Be this and every future day
Still wiser than the past;
And when I all my life survey,
May grace sustain at last.


---Alternative verses---


If bliss thy providence impart,
For which, resign'd, I pray;
Give me to feel the grateful heart,
And thus thy love repay.


If bliss thy providence impart,
For which, resign'd, I pray;
Give me to feel the grateful heart,
And grateful homage pay.
