New Every Morning
Text: J Keble, 1792-1866
Music: S Webbe, 1740-1816
New every morning is the love
our wakening and uprising prove;
through sleep and darkness safely brought,
restored to life and power and thought.
New mercies, each returning day,
hover around us while we pray;
new perils past, new sins forgiven,
new thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven.
If, on our daily course, our mind
be set to hallow all we find,
new treasures still, of countless price,
God will provide for sacrifice.
Old friends, old scenes, will lovelier be,
as more of heaven in each we see;
some softening gleam of love and prayer
shall dawn on every cross and care.
Only, O Lord, in thy dear love,
fit us for perfect rest above,
and help us, this and every day,
to live more nearly as we pray.
