P.V. Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear

1 Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear
My voice ascending high;
To thee I will direct my pray'r,
To thee lift up mine eye.

2 Up to the heav'ns where Christ is gone
To plead for all his saints,
Presenting at his Father's throne
Our songs and our complaints.

3 Thou art a God, before whose sight
The wicked shall not stand;
Sinners shall ne'er be thy delight,
Nor dwell at thy right hand.

4 But to thy house will I resort,
to taste thy mercies there;
I will frequent thine holy court,
And worship in thy fear.

5 O may the spirit guide my feet,
In ways of righteousness,
Make every path of duty strait
And plain before my face.

6 My watchful enemies combine
To tempt my feet astray;
They flatter with a base design,
To make my soul their prey.

7 Lord, crush the serpent in the dust,
And all his plots destroy:
While those that in thy mercy trust,
For ever shout for joy.

8 The men that love and fear thy name,
Shall see their hopes fulfill'd;
The mighty God will compass them
With favour as a shield.
