As morning dawns and day awakes

AS MORNING DAWNS AND DAY AWAKES,
to you I bring my need;
O gracious God, my source of strength,
in you I live and breathe.
Each hour is yours, by wisdom planned,
each deed empowered by sovereign hands;
renew my spirit, help me stand—
be glorified today.

2. As day unfolds, I seek your will
in all of life’s demands;
and though the tempter tries me still,
I cling to your commands.
Let every effort of my life
display the matchless worth of Christ;
make me a living sacrifice—
be glorified today.

3. As sun gives way to darkest night,
your Spirit still is here,
and though my strength fades like the light,
new mercies will appear.
I rest in you; abide with me
until our trials and suffering
give way to final victory;
be glorified today.

I rest in you; abide with me
until our trials and suffering
give way to final victory;
be glorified today—
be glorified, I pray.
