Representative Text

1 As the sun doth daily rise,
Bright'ning 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;
Lest 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!

5 Praise we, with the heavn'ly host,
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost;
Thee would we with one accord
Praise and magnify, O Lord!

Amen.
