The morning bright with rosy light

Representative Text

1 The morning bright,
With rosy light,
Hath waked me from my sleep;
Father, I own
Thy love alone
Thy little one doth keep.

2 All through the day,
I humbly pray,
Be Thou my Guard and Guide;
My sins forgive,
And let me live,
Blest Jesus, near Thy side.

3 O make Thy rest
Within my breast,
Great Spirit of all grace;
Make me like Thee;
Then shall I be
Prepared to see Thy face.

4 To Father, Son,
And Spirit, One,
Great God Whom I adore,
All glory be,
My God, to Thee,
Both now, and evermore.

Amen.
