The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.
It speaks of His greatness, it sings of His love.
And each day at dawning, I lift my heart high,
And raise up my eyes to the infinite sky.
I watch the night vanish, as a new day is born.
And I hear the birds sing, on the wings of the morn.
I see the dew glisten in crystal like splendour.
While God, with a touch that is gentle and tender
Wraps up the night, and softly tucks it away.
And hangs out the sun to herald a new day.
And so I give thanks,and my heart kneels to pray
“God keep me and guide me, and go with me today.”
