Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

In the morning I will pray For God's blessing on the day

In the morning I will pray For God's blessing on the day

Representative Text

In the morning I will pray
For God’s blessing on the day;
What this day shall be my lot,
Light or darkness, know I not.

Should it be with clouds o’ercast,
Clouds of sorrow, gathering fast,
Thou, who givest light divine,
Shine within me, Lord, O, shine!

Show me, if I tempted be,
How to find all strength in Thee,
And a perfect triumph win
Over every bosom sin.

Keep my feet from secret snares,
Keep mine eyes, O God, from tears!
Every step Thy love attend,
And my soul from death defend!

He is an accomplished scholar, and has been an active worker in reforms of various kinds. His publications are numerous and include a Manual of Domestic Worship, 1840, and a translation of Schiller's Song of the Bell. His hymns are somewhat numerous, and several of them have great merit. The best and most widely used are:— 1. Father in heaven, to Thee my heart. Resignation. Appeared in The Christian Disciple, 1822.
