THE CHRISTIAN LIFE
My God, how endless is Thy love!
Thy gifts are every evening new;
And morning mercies from above.
Gently distill like early dew.
Thou spreadest the curtains of the night,
Great Guardian of my sleeping hours;
Thy sovereign word restores the light,
And quickens all my drowsy powers.
I yield myself to Thy command;
To Thee I consecrate my days;
Perpetual blessings from Thy hand
Demand perpetual songs of praise.

My God, how endless is Thy love!
Thy gifts are every evening new;
And morning mercies from above.
Gently distill like early dew.

Thou spreadest the curtains of the night,
Great Guardian of my sleeping hours;
Thy sovereign word restores the light,
And quickens all my drowsy powers.

I yield myself to Thy command;
To Thee I consecrate my days;
Perpetual blessings from Thy hand
Demand perpetual songs of praise.
