42. As the Sun Doth Daily Rise

1 As the sun doth daily rise,
Brightening all the morning skies,
So to Thee with one accord
Lift we up our hearts, O Lord!

2 Day by day provide us food,
For from Thee come all things good;
Strength unto our souls afford
From Thy living Bread, O Lord!

3 Be our Guard in sin and strife;
Be the Leader of our life;
Let from Thee we stray abroad,
Stay our wayward feet, O Lord!

4 Quickened by the Spirit's grace
All Thy holy will to trace
While we daily search Thy Word,
Wisdom true impart, O Lord!
