"Good Morning, Lord"

Good morning Lord, the night has passed,
Just as you said it would,
And once again I gaze upon
Your world and find it good.
The darkness fades, as darkness will,
And so my heart is light,
For you await to share my day
Who watched me through the night.

I cannot see what lies ahead,
But I am sure you know,
So take my hand and walk with me,
Wherever I may go.
No joy or pain is ever sent,
Save by thine own accord,
So in the shadow of Thy love,
I say... Good Morning, Lord.
