MAY THE MORNING (PSALM 143)
1. May the morning bring Your unfailing love.
Show me the way, Lord, the way that I should go.
You are my Trust, Lord. I hide myself in You.
Into Your hands, Lord, do I lift my soul.
Such troubles pursue me!
They crush my life with dread.
I live in darkness,
the darkness of the dead the dead, O Lord!
2. May the morning bring Your unfailing love.
Save my life, Lord, from the enemy.
Grant salvation to one who loves You, Lord.
Answer me quickly. Do not hide from me!
My spirit is failing.
My heart sinks in distress.
I thirst for You, Lord,
the touch of Your caress be with me!
3. May the morning bring Your unfailing love.
May Your Spirit lead me along the Way.
Lift these troubles, dispel the gloom of night.
May darkness vanish before Your light of day.
(3.Alt) May the morning bring Your unfailing love.
Teach me Your will, Lord, that I may walk in Light.
Lift my darkness, and shed Your grace on me.
May Your love, Lord, shine forth to end the night.
