73. New Every Morning Is the Love

1 New ev'ry morning is the love
our waking and uprising prove;
through sleep and darkness safely brought,
restored to life, and pow'r, and thought.

2 New mercies each returning day
hover around us while we pray;
new perils past, new sins forgiv'n,
new thoughts of God, new hopes of heav'n.

3 If on our daily course our mind
be set to hallow all we find,
new treasures still of countless price
God will provide for sacrifice.

4 The trivial round, the common task
will furnish all we need or ask:
room to deny ourselves, a road
to bring us daily nearer God.

5 Seek we no more; content with these,
let present rapture, comfort, ease
as God shall bid them, come and go--
the secret, this, of rest below.

6 Only, O Lord, in thy dear love
fit us for perfect rest above,
and help us this and every day
to live more nearly as we pray.
