353. My God, How Endless Is Your Love

1 My God, how endless is your love!
Your gifts are every evening new,
and morning mercies from above
gently distil, like earthly dew.

2 You spread the curtains of the night,
great Guardian of my sleeping hours;
your sovereign Word restores the light,
and quickens all my drowsy powers.

3 I yield my powers to your command;
to you I consecrate my days:
perpetual blessings from your hand
demand perpetual songs of praise.
