Each morning with its newborn light
proclaims the Lord of life is great!
His faithfulness will have no end;
to him our songs or praise ascend.
The gift of light that fills the sky
helps us to see and choose our way;
then let us order our affairs
in praise of him who for us cares.
Lord, let our eyes, the body's light,
be drawn to what is good and right
and to yourself, the source of life,
our hope in fear, our peace in strife.
Dispel the darkness from our days
and free us from all bitterness,
from haughty mind and blinded sight,
and lead us forward day and night.
To walk as in the light of day,
be steadfast always, come what may,
we turn in faith to you, our Friend,
and pray: sustain us to the end.
