New Every Morning is the Love
New every morning is the love
Our wakening and uprising prove;
Through sleep and darkness safely brought,
Restored to life and power and thought.
New mercies, each returning day,
Hover around us while we pray;
New perils past, new sins
New thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven.
If, on our daily course, our mind
Be set to hallow all we
New treasures still, of countless price,
God will provide for sacrifice.
Old friends, old scenes, will lovelier
As more of heaven in each we see;
Some softening gleam of love and prayer
Shall dawn on every cross and care.
We need not bid, for cloistered cell,
Our neighbor and our words farewell,
Nor strive to find ourselves too high
For sinful man beneath the
The trivial round, the common task,
Will furnish all we ought to ask;
Room to deny ourselves, a
To bring us daily nearer God.
Seek we no more; content with these,
Let present rapture, comfort,
As heaven shall bid them, come and go:
The secret this of rest below.
Only, O Lord, in Thy dear
Fit us for perfect rest above,
And help us, this and every day,
To live more nearly as we pray.
