The morning breaks, I place my hand in Thine,
My God, 'tis Thine to lead, to follow mine;
No word deceitful shall I speak the while,
Nor shall I stain my hand with action vile.
Thine be this day with worthy labour filled,
Strong let me stand to do the duty willed;
Nor swayed by restless passion would I be,
That I may give the offering pure to Thee;
Else were I shamed when hoary age I see,
Shamed were this board that bears Thy gifts to me:
Mine is the impulse; O my Christ, I pray,
Be Thou Thyself to me the Blessed Way.
