1. Each day, Lord,
I wake in the dawn of your love,
In your heavenly light.
2. Each morning,
I wash in the fall of your dew,
Then take up my cross
In your sight.
3. Each evening,
I rest in the shade of your wings,
Then sleep in your arms
All night through.
4. But one day you’ll call
My frail spirit back home —
Then I’ll reunite, Lord,
