1 While morning still is breaking,
and day replaces night,
beneath God's care awaking
we thank him for new light.
We thank him that he calls us
to life and health anew;
whatever now befalls us
his care will still be true.
2 O Israel's guardian, hear us,
Watch o'er us this day;
in all we do be near us.
For others, too, we pray;
to you we would commend them,
our Church, our youth, our land;
direct them and defend them
when dangers are at hand.
3 O grant us peace and gladness,
give us our daily bread,
shield us from grief and sadness,
on us your blessings shed.
Grant that our whole behaviour
in truth and righteousness
may praise you, Lord, our Saviour,
whose holy name we bless.
4 You are our vine: O nourish
your branches, so that we
may grow in you and flourish
and ever fruitful be;
your Spirit pour within us,
and let the gifts of grace
to those good actions win us
that best may show your praise.
