Hymn 418Play music
1 New every morning is the love
Our wakening and uprising prove;
Through sleep and darkness safely brought,
Restored to life,and power,and thought.
2 New mercies each returning day
Around us hover while we pray;
New perils past, new sins forgiven,
New time to serve our Lord in Heaven.
3 The daily round, the common task,
Will furnish all we ought to ask-
Room to deny ourselves; a road
To bring us nearer to our God.
4 So may we in our waking hours
Our Master serve with all our powers:
And while we serve, O may we be
As thou wouldst have us-more like thee!
5 O , blessed Lord,who art above,
Deal with us gently in thy love;
And help us this and every day
To live more nearly as we pray.
