Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
for to you I entrust my life. (Psalm 143:8)
“Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.” (Psalm 126:6)
I watch, LORD, as the sun rises,
sending brilliance over all the earth.
I watch, Lord, for You, my present God
who holds both me and all the earth in Your powerful hands.
I watch for You that I might not be overcome
by the quaking world, others’ voices, or my own unsteady self.
I watch for Your unfailing love that meets me each morning,
peaking over the horizon in brilliant hues:
red, like Your blood that washes me clean;
pink, like Your hope of joy in the morning;
gold, like Your radiance as King over all.
I watch, Lord, for You as the sun rises
pouring brilliance over all my life.
