My God, how endless is thy love!
Thy gifts are every evening new;
And morning mercies from above
Gently distil like early dew.

Thou spreadst the curtains of the night,
Great Guardian of my sleeping hours;
Thy sovereign word restores the light,
And quickens all my drowsy pow'rs.

I yield my powers to thy command,
To Thee I consecrate my days;
Perpetual blessings from thine hand
Demand perpetual songs of praise.
