Lyrics

Oh the radiant threshold,
Of this dawning day,
In the sacred stillness,
We will pause and pray.

Refrain

In the morning, noon and evening,
We would seek Thy side;
O do Thou, dear Lord, befriend us;
O be Thou our guide.

Lo! the Father bids us,
Come to seek His aid;
Proffers help and guidance,
To the evening’s shade.

Refrain

Keep us from temptation,
Bless in every need;
Lead us, gentle Shepherd,
Where Thy flocks do feed.
