Published in 2 hymnals
1 My heart with deep emotion
Gives thanks to Thee and praise,
In early morn's devotion,
And throughout all my days;
O God, upon thy throne!
To honor and adore Thee,
I bring my praise before Thee
Through Christ, Thine Only Son.
2 For, 'twas Thy grace that o'er me
Kept vigil through the night,
And 'twas Thy arm that bore me,
Safe through morning light.
To Thee my prayer I raise;
Werein I did offend Thee,
Do Thou forgive; defend me
In all my future days.
3 My life, my soul,--defend them!
My wife, child, goods, and home,--
To Thy hand I commend them,
From Thee these blessings come.
Thy bounteous hand bestows
My household and my treasures,
my parents, friends, and pleasures;
Through thee my cup o'erflows.
4 God shall do my advising,
Whose might with wisdom blends;
May He bless rest and rising,
My efforts, means and ends!
To god, forever blessed,
Will I with mine confide me,
And suffer Him to guide me
As seemeth to Him best.
5 Amen: Lord, Thou wilt hear me
With this I close my prayer;
In all I do wilt cheer me,
And keep me in Thy care.
So I put forth my hands,
And look not long behind me,
But ply the task assigned me
By God, as He commands.
