214a. New every morning is the love

1 New every morning is the love
our wakening and uprising prove,
through sleep and darkness safely brought,
restored to life, and power, and thought.

2 New mercies, each returning day,
hover around us while we pray, --
new perils past, new sins forgiven,
new thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven.

3 If, on our daily course, our mind
be set to hallow all we find,
new treasures still, of countless price,
God will provide for sacrifice.

4 The trivial round, the common task,
will furnish all we ought to ask, --
room to deny ourselves, a road
to bring us daily nearer God.

5 Prepare us, Lord, in your dear love,
for perfect life with you above;
and help us, this and every day,
to live more nearly as we pray.
