When morn­ing lights the east­ern skies,
O Lord, Thy mer­cy show;
On Thee alone my hope re­lies,
Let me Thy kind­ness know.

Teach me the way that I should go;
I lift my soul to Thee;
For re­fuge from my cru­el foe
To Thee, O Lord, I flee.

Thou art my God, to Thee I pray;
Teach me Thy will to heed;
And in the right and per­fect way
May Thy good Spir­it lead.

For Thy name’s sake, O gra­cious Lord,
Revive my soul and bless,
And in Thy faith­ful­ness and love
Redeem me from dis­tress.
