I come to You this morning, Lord,
Bringing my requests before Your Throne;
Help me see past the faults of others,
For You know I have enough of my own.
Help me look beyond outer appearances,
And look upon hearts instead;
Help me share Your love with others,
And not leave kind words unsaid.
When I lie in my bed at nightfall
And look back at the day Iíve lived,
I pray Iíll have done all You asked
And gave all You asked me to give.

I rise before the dawning of the morning,
and cry for help; I hope in Your Word.
