A Morning Prayer
Again From Calm and Sweet Repose
Again, from calm and sweet repose, I rise to hail the dawn;
Again my waking eyes unclose to view the smiling morn.
Great God of love, Thy praise I'll sing, for Thou hast safely kept
My soul beneath Thy guardian wing, and watched me while I slept.
Glory to Thee, eternal Lord, O teach my heart to pray
And Thy blest Spirit's help afford, to guide me through the day.
Let every thought and word accord with Thy most holy will;
Each deed the precepts of Thy word with pious aim fulfill.
From danger, sin, and every ill My constant Guardian prove;
O sanctify my heart and fill with thoughts of holy love.
