A PRAYER WITH THIS MORNING'S SUNRISE

The radient sun shines in the skies,
With joy from sleep we now arise.
All praise to God, who thro' this night
Hath kept us from the devil's might.

Lord Jesus Christ, guide us this day;
Keep sin and shame far from our way.
Thy guardian angels to us send
And let them to our wants attend.

Direct our hearts to do Thy will
And for Thy Word true love instil
That we may do whate'er is right
And ever pleasing in Thy sight.

Crown all our labors with success,
Each one in his own calling bless.
May all we do or think or say
Exalt and praise Thee, Lord, this day!  Amen.

Nikolaus Herman, (1480-1561)  -   #547   The Lutheran Hymnal
