As the sun does daily rise

As the sun does daily rise,
Brightening all the morning skies,
So to You with one accord
Lift we up our hearts, O God.

Day by day provide us food,
For from You come all things good;
Strength unto our souls afford
From Your living bread, O God.

Be our guard in sin and strife;
Be the leader of our life;
Lest from You we stray abroad,
Stay our wayward feet, O God.

Quickened by the Spirit's grace
All Your holy will to trace
While we daily search Your Word,
Wisdom true impart, O God.
