A SONG OF PRAISE FOR THE MORNING




My God was with me all this night,
And gave me sweet repose:
My God did watch, even whilst I slept,
Or I had never rose.
How many groaned and wished for sleep,
Until they wished for day,
measuring slow hours with their quick pains,
Whilst I securely lay!


Whilst I did sleep all dangers slept,
No thieves did me affright;
Those evening wolves, those beasts of prey,
Disturbers of the night.
No raging flames nor storms did rend
The house that I was in;
I heard no dreadful cries without,
No doleful groans within.


What terrors have I scaped this night,
Which have on others fell!
My body might have slept its last;
My soul have waked in hell.
Sweet rest hath gained that strength to me,
Which labour did devour:
My body was in weakness sown,
But it is raised in power.


Lord, for the mercies of the night,
My humble thanks I pay;
And unto thee I dedicate
The first-fruits of the day.
Let this day praise thee, O my God,
And so let all my days:
And, O let mine eternal day
Be thine eternal praise.
