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!
