653. Lord God of Morning and of Night

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

2 Fresh hopes have wakened in our heart,
Fresh zeal to do our daily part;
In peaceful sleep our strength restore,
Throughout the day to serve you more.

3 O Lord of light, your love alone
Can make our human hearts your own;
Be ever with us, Lord, that we
Your blessed face one day may see.

4 Praise God, our maker and our friend;
Praise God through time, till time shall end;
Till psalm and song one name adore,
Through heav'n’s great day of evermore.
