Representative Text

1 I cannot seek too early in the morning,
I cannot come to Thee too late at night;
Thou wilt receive me in the earliest dawning,
And Thou wilt welcome in the darkest night.

O God, Thou art my God;
Early will I seek Thee,
early will I seek Thee,
O my God.

2 No evil can approach but Thou beholdest,
No danger compass me but Thou art near;
My trembling heart beneath Thy wing Thou foldest,
Within Thy “secret place” can come no fear. [Refrain]

3 Shall I not seek Thee in life’s early morning,
Shall I not cling to Thee thro' earthly night,
Till Thou reveal to me the heavenly dawning,
And I shall see Thy face, and “no more night”? [Refrain]
