Hymn 419Play music
1 Once more the sun is beaming bright,
Once more to God we pray
That His eternal light may guide
And cheer our souls this day.
2 O may no sin our hands defile,
Or cause our minds to rove;
Upon our lips be simple truth,
And in our hearts be love.
3 Throughout the day, O Lord, in Thee
May ready help be found
To save us from temptation's snares
Besetting us around.
4 Subservient to Thy daily praise
Our daily toil shall be;
So may our works,in Thee begun,
Be blest, O Lord, by Thee.
5 And when the Sun of Righteousness
Shall brighten every shore,
May we his radiance then reflect,
And live for evermore.
