To you, before the dawning light,
my gracious God, I pray;
I meditate your name by night,
and keep your law by day.
When midnight darkness veils the skies,
I call your works to mind;
my thoughts in hushed devotion rise,
and sweet acceptance find.
Throughout my day I'll lift my hands,
and give you thanks in prayer;
your righteous providence demands
my praise for all your care.
My spirit joys to see your grace;
your promise bears me up;
and if salvation long delays,
your word supports my hope.
