To thee, before the dawning light
My gracious God, I pray;

Ver. 147,55

To thee, before the dawning light
      My gracious God, I pray;
I meditate thy name by night,
      And keep thy law by day.

Ver. 81

My spirit faints to see thy grace,
      Thy promise bears me up;
And while salvation long delays,
      Thy word supports my hope.

Ver. 164

Seven times a day I lift my hands,
      And pay my thanks to thee;
Thy righteous providence demands
      Repeated praise from me.

Ver. 62

When midnight darkness veils the skies,
      I call thy works to mind;
My thoughts in warm devotion rise,
      And sweet acceptance find.

~ Isaac Watts
