1139. In the stillness of the morning

Author: Martin E Leckebusch

In the stillness of the morning
when I wake, and day is new,
Father, may your promised presence
draw my thoughts to you.

2.   Through the never-ending clamour
of the most demanding day,
may your Spirit’s inner prompting
show me Jesus’ way.

3.   And at times when circumstances
force me into solitude,
may I find my heart is nurtured
and my peace renewed.

4.   In the welcome calm of evening,
through the darkest night-time hour,
Father, may I rest securely
in your loving power.
