The tender morning comes
with its promise of hope and renewal.
The dawn drives the darkness away
to bring us a brand new day.
The gloom that often comes upon us
is like the night that covers us.
It is time to bow our heads in prayer
and think of our emptiness.
Faith is such a precious gift
To see what no one else does
It is the power that gives us a lift
when nothing, no one else does
It’s sometimes hard to see
what the eyes cannot perceive
But this is such a cherished present
that not everyone receives.
I pray for my faith to be strong
and always to carry me through
I pray, Oh Lord, that I will be faithful
until I am with You.
