496. I Owe the Lord a Morning Song

1 I owe the Lord a morning song
of gratitude and praise,
for the kind mercy freely shown
in length’ning out my days.

2 God kept me safe another night;
I see another day.
Now, Holy Spirit, as the light,
direct me in your way.

3 Keep me from danger and from sin,
help me your will to do,
so that my heart be pure within,
and I your goodness know.

4 Keep me until you call me hence,
where never night can be,
and save me, God, for Jesus’ sake;
he shed his blood for me.
