Ev’ry Morning Mercies New
Ev’ry morning mercies new
Fall as fresh as morning dew;
Ev’ry morning let us pay
Tribute with the early day;
For Thy mercies, Lord, are sure;
Thy compassion doth endure.
Still the greatness of Thy love
Daily doth our sins remove;
Daily, far as east from west,
Lifts the burden from the breast;
Gives unbought, to those who pray,
Strength to stand in evil day.
Let our prayers each morn prevail,
That these gifts may never fail;
And, as we confess the sin
And the tempter’s power within,
Feed us with the Bread of Life;
Fit us for our daily strife.
As the morning light returns,
As the sun with splendor burns,
Teach us still to turn to Thee,
Ever blessÃ¨d Trinity,
With our hands our hearts to raise,
In unfailing prayer and praise.
