Begin the day with God

1
Begin the day with God!
  He is thy Sun and Day!
His is the radiance of thy dawn;
  To Him address thy lay.
2
Sing a new song at morn!
  Join the glad woods and hills;
Join the fresh winds and seas and plains,
  Join the bright flowers and rills.
3
Sing thy first song to God!
  Not to thy fellow men;
Not to the creatures of His hand,
  But to the glorious One.
4
Take thy first walk with God!
  Let Him go forth with thee;
By stream, or sea, or mountain path,
  Seek still His company.
5
Thy first transaction be
  With God Himself above;
So shall thy business prosper well
  And all the day be love.

This song has been ringing in my thoughts because at school we use to sing it almost every morning. I am so glad I have found the words. They are so inspiring! A great old hymn.

Beloved Lord Jesus, I need to take my first walk everyday with You, O my God!

I want to let You go forth with me;

By stream, or sea, or mountain path,

I need Your help. Bless me now.

"Dear Lord Jesus, call us morning by morning as we rise from our slumber to spend time with You. Lord, do be the beginning of all our mornings. We love You, dearest One."
