Scripture: Psalm 40:5a
1 Dawn's golden morning Brightly adorning
All of creation With exaltation
Fills all our hearts with its glorious sight.
Though I was sleeping No watch was I keeping,
Now I am waking And morning is breaking
There in the heavens appears a great light.
2 To God in heaven All praise be given!
Come, let us offer And gladly proffer
To the creator the gifts he doth prize.
He well receiveth A heart that believeth;
Hymns that adore him Are precious before him
And to this throne like sweet incense arise.
3 Evening and morning Sunset and dawning
Wealth, peace, and gladness, Comfort in sadness
These are thy works all the glory be thine!
Times without number, Awake or in slumber,
Thine eye observes us, From danger preserves us,
Causing thy mercy upon us to shine.
4 Father, oh, hear me, Pardon and spare me,
Calm all my terrors, Blot out my errors,
That by thine eyes they may no more be scanned.
Order my goings, Direct all my doings,
As I may please thee, Retain or release me;
All I commit to thy fatherly hand.
