People of the morning 

Wake to greet the rising sun

Take some time to ponder

Before the day’s begun

Pause to be thankful

For yet another day


Take time to appreciate

God’s blessings along the way

To pray for strength and guidance

For tasks that lie ahead

To remember needs of the living

And promises of the dead


As the sun begins to rise

 Ready to journey on

Thankful for another chance

To spread joy and kindness too

In a world sometimes crying

From the very depths of pain

At how some folks are treated

While others just seek gain


O God of the morning, 

Hear our humble prayer

Bless us as this day begins

Show us how much You care

Though the road is rocky

Spare us from despair
