To thee, before the dawning light My gracious God, I pray;
To thee, before the dawning light My gracious God, I pray; I meditate thy name by night, And keep thy law by day.
My spirit faints to see thy grace, Thy promise bears me up; And while salvation long delays, Thy word supports my hope.
Seven times a day I lift my hands, And pay my thanks to thee; Thy righteous providence demands Repeated praise from me.
When midnight darkness veils the skies, I call thy works to mind; My thoughts in warm devotion rise, And sweet acceptance find.
~ Isaac Watts
