Do I begin each day anew

In prayer to God above?

To seek His guidance through the day,

To praise Him for His love?

Do I awake with songs of joy

For having such a Friend;

Who, though all others may forsake,

Will keep me to the end?

Do I arise and go about

My daily tasks to do

Content to know that I am His

And He will see me through?

Oh, may I live so close to Him

And trust His tender care;

That each new day may bring me joy

In knowing He is there.

My task will be a lighter one

My path a brighter way,

Till life’s long journey ended

Then dawns Eternal Day.
