Wings of Morning

Lift me up on wings of morning
That I may dwell in peace with Thee.
    And, as I live, Thy way adorning,
May I ever faithful be.

    Give me strength to face the morrow,
E'en the valley of the shadow of death,
    And overcome all worldly sorrow
Through abiding, living faith.

    Let me feel Thy presence, ever,
For Thy strength I need so much.
    May I leave Thy pathway, never,
But lend my soul Thy healing touch.

    Then my prayer, when I must stroll
Through river Jordan, may I be
    Prepared for Him who cleansed my soul,
My Lord, my God, eternally.
