Lyrics ~ 5 verses
1. New ev’ry morning is the love
Our wak’ning and uprising prove;
Through sleep and darkness safely brought,
Restored to life and pow’r and thought.
2. New mercies, each returning day,
Hover around us while we pray;
New perils past, new sins forgiv’n
New thoughts of God, new hopes of heav’n.
3. If on our daily course our mind
Be set to hallow all we find,
New treasures still, of countless price,
God will provide for sacrifice.
4. The trivial round, the common task,
Will furnish all we ought to ask,
Room to deny ourselves,
A road to bring us daily nearer God.
5. Only, O Lord, in thy dear love
Fit us for perfect rest above;
And help us, this and ev’ry day,
To live more nearly as we pray.
