547. The Radiant Sun Shines in the Skies

1 The radiant sun shines in the skies,
With joy from sleep we now arise.
All praise to God, who thro' this night
Hath kept us from the devil's might.

2 Lord Jesus Christ, guide us this day,
Keep sin and shame far from our way.
Thy guardian angels to us send
And let them to our wants attend.

3 Direct our hearts to do Thy will
And for Thy Word true love instil
That we may do whate'er is right
And ever pleasing in Thy sight.

4 Crown all our labors with success,
Each one in his own calling bless.
May all we do or think or say
Exalt and praise Thee, Lord, this day!
