MORNING HYMNS.
 
Hymn 37 • Lord in the morning thou shalt hear
HYMN 37. C. M.
 
1 Lord in the morning thou shalt hear
My voice ascending high:
To thee will I direct my pray’r,
To thee lift up mine eye:—
 
2 Up to the heav’ns where Christ has gone,
To plead for all his saints,
Presenting at the Father’s throne,
Our songs and our complaints.
 
3 Thou art a God, before whose sight,
The wicked shall not stand:
The righteous shall be thy delight
And dwell at thy right hand.
 
4 O may thy Spirit guide my feet,
In ways of righteousness!
Make ev’ry path of duty straight,
And plain before my face.
 
5 O do thou give my daily bread,—
And be my sins forgiven; [p. 51]
