When thou wakest in the morning

1
When thou wakest in the morning
  Ere thou tread’st the untried way
Of the lot that lies before thee
  Through the coming busy day;
Whether sunbeams promise brightness,
  Whether dim forebodings fall,
Be thy dawning glad or gloomy,
  Go to Jesus, tell Him all.
2
In the calm of sweet communion
  Let thy daily work be done;
In the peace of soul-outpouring
  Care be banished, patience won;
And if earth with its enchantments
  Seek thy spirit to enthrall,
Ere thou listen, ere thou answer,
  Turn to Jesus, tell Him all.
3
Then, as hour by hour glides by thee,
  Thou wilt blessed guidance know,
Thine own burdens being lightened,
  Thou canst bear another’s woe;
Thou canst help the weak ones onward,
  Thou canst raise up those that fall:
But remember, while thou servest,
  Still tell Jesus, tell Him all.
4
And if weariness creeps o’er thee
  As the day wears to its close,
Or if sudden fierce temptation
  Bring thee face to face with foes;
In thy weakness, in thy peril,
  Raise to heaven a truthful call;
Strength and calm for every crisis
  Come, in telling Jesus all.

We just simply cast all our burdens on the Lord - He cares! Just spend time to tell Him all.

The Lord loves us so much. He really is with us no matter what we go thru-daily needs to crisis. We can tell Him all! He knows us and wants us to have such an intimate and personal relationship with Him no matter what time of day or night it is or what we may be going through. Praise our wonderful Lord Jesus for being so sweet!

Amen! Talking to Jesus, like a friend, rather than appealing to Him like a God far away from us, is the best way to cultivate an intimate, personal relationship with Him. This is what God wants, to speak "face to face" like He did with Moses.
