Lyrics ~ 4 verses
Meter 87 87
When the starlight fades to amber
And the dawn proclaims the hour,
We will seek life’s new adventures
In God’s loving care and power.
And bright shining holy Father,
Make us children of the sun,
To help and care for others
Like your own beloved Son.
For the earth is like a mother
Who gives us life and health,
We must care for her and nurture
The nature that’s her wealth.
When the fun and games are over
And our toys are put away,
We know it’s time to pray now
Giving you thanks for a perfect day.
