O Lord, at early morning hear

O Lord, at early morning hear
my voice ascend on high;
to you will I address my prayer,
to you lift up my eye.

2. You are a God before whose sight
the wicked may not stand;
their pride and falsehood, rage and spite
shall cease at your command.

3. But by your mercy I may now
within your house appear;
towards your temple I will bow
and worship you with fear.

4. Lead me, O Lord, direct my feet
in ways of righteousness;
make every path of duty straight
and plain before my face.

5. For lying lips and murderous hearts
great wickedness have planned;
let them receive their just deserts,
O God, by their own hand.

6. Let all who trust you, Lord, delight
to see their hopes fulfilled,
for you surround them day and night
with favour as a shield.
