1. Lord God of morning and of night

1 Lord God of morning and of night,
We thank Thee for Thy gift of light;
As in the dawn the shadows fly,
We seem to find Thee now more nigh.

2 Fresh hopes have wakened in the heart,
Fresh force to do our daily part;
Thy thousand sleeps our strength restore
A thousandfold to serve Thee more.

3 O Lord of lights, ’tis Thou alone
Canst make our darkened hearts Thine own:
O, then be with us, Lord, that we
In Thy great day may wake to Thee.

4 Praise God, our Maker and our Friend;
Praise Him through time, till time shall end;
Till psalm and song His name adore
Through Heaven’s great day of evermore.
