O Thou Who turnest into morning
The shadows of the passing night,
Again to conscious life returning,
We bless Thee for the newborn light.
Grant us that light, to all unfailing
Who seek to do Thy perfect will,
That we, o’er doubt and fear prevailing,
May trust Thy good above all ill;
That we may offer Thee thanksgiving
Beyond our prayers and songs that rise
In greater faithfulness of living,
In deeper love through sacrifice.
