hymn from Lamentations 3:22-23

Every morning mercies new fall fresh as morning dew;
Every morning let us pay tribute with the early day:
For Thy mercies, Lord, are sure; Thy compassion doth endure.

Still the greatness of Thy love daily doth our sins remove;
Daily, far as east from west, lifts the burden from the breast;
Gives un-bought to those who pray strength to stand in evil day.

Let our prayers each morning prevail, that these gifts may never fail;
And, as we confess the sin and the tempter's power within,
Every morning, for the strife, feed us with the Bread of Life.

As the morning light returns, as the sun with splendor burns,
Teach us still to turn to Thee, ever blessed Trinity,
With our hands our hearts to raise, in unfailing prayer and praise.
