1 Father, in the morning
Unto Thee I pray;
Let Thy loving kindness
Keep me through this day.

I will pray, I will pray,
Ever will I pray;
Morning, noon, and evening,
Unto Thee I’ll pray.

2 At the busy noontide,
Press’d with work and care,
Then I’ll wait with Jesus,
Till He hear my prayer. [Refrain]

3 When the evening shadows
Chase away the light,
Father, then I’ll pray Thee,
Bless Thy child tonight. [Refrain]

4 Thus in life’s glad morning,
In its bright noonday,
In the shadowy evening,
Ever will I pray. [Refrain]
