1. O Father, hear my morning prayer,
Thine aid impart to me,
That I may make my life today
Acceptable to Thee.
2. May this desire my spirit rule,
And, as the moments fly,
Something of good be born in me,
Something of evil die.
3. Some grace that seeks my heart to win,
With shining victory meet;
Some sin that strives for mastery
Find overthrow complete.
4. That so throughout the coming day
The hours shall carry me
A little farther from the world,
A little nearer Thee.
