A Psalm for the Morning
Oh, Lord, my joy in each morning, my peace in every evening;
Oh, Lord, my Redeemer, my Savior, my King and my Friend --
I bow before You with heart-filled adoration and love.
Forever I shall come to You in worship, in love,
Desiring Your mercy and kindness,
Longing for Your presence;
For there is none beside You who is Truth and Love, pure and holy, merciful and gracious,
Gentle and long suffering, Almighty and everlasting.
You alone are God most high.
May Your praise fill my lips and my heart.
May You be glorified this day in my life.
Throughout this earth, in every place, may Your Holy name be praised;
May Your people honor You with their hearts, their lives.
You are God, all powerful, all knowing;
Ever caring, ever merciful;
Always just, always true.
Your kindness and care know no bounds. Your love is established and true forevermore.
In You, Oh God, do I place my trust;
In You do I hope.
Come this day and show Yourself strong.
Come this day to destroy the work of the enemy of Your people.
Come this day and reign over all.
May Your will be accomplished today in this earth,
In this nation,
In this home,
In this heart -- my heart.
Oh, my God, I will love You forever. Amen.
