My Fa­ther, for an­oth­er night
Of qui­et sleep and rest,
For all the joy of morn­ing light,
Thy ho­ly name be blest.

Now with the new­born day I give
Myself anew to Thee,
That as Thou will­est I may live,
And what Thou will­est be.

Whate’er I do, things great or small,
Whate’er I speak or frame,
Thy glo­ry may I seek in all,
Do all in Je­sus’ name.

My Fa­ther, for His sake, I pray
Thy child ac­cept and bless;
And lead me by Thy grace to­day
In paths of right­eous­ness.
