My Father, For Another Night

Melody -

H. W. Baker, 1821-1877

1. My Father, for another night
Of quiet sleep and rest,
For all the joy of morning light,
Thy holy name be blessed.

2. Now with the new-born day I give
Myself anew to thee,
That as thou willest I may live,
And what thou willest be.
  3. Whate'er I do, things great or small,
Whate'er I speak or frame,
Thy glory may I seek in all,
Do all in Jesu's name.

4. My Father, for his sake, I pray,
Thy child accept and bless;
And lead me by thy grace today
In paths of righteousness.
