I owe the Lord a morning song
Of gratitude and praise,
For the kind mercy He has shown
In lengthening out my days.
He kept me safe another night;
I see another day;
Now may His Spirit, as the light,
Direct me in His way.
Keep me from danger and from sin;
Help me Thy will to do,
So that my heart be pure within;
And I Thy goodness know.
Keep me till Thou wilt call me hence,
Where never night can be;
And save me, Lord, for Jesus’ sake.
He shed His blood for me.
