Text: Latin hymn; trans. by J. Masters; adapt. by Horatio Nelson

Tune: INNOCENTS, Meter: 77.77

1. As the sun doth daily rise,
brightening all the morning skies,
so to thee with one accord
lift we up our hearts, O Lord.

2. Day by day provide us food,
for from thee come all things good;
strength unto our souls afford
from thy living bread, O Lord.

3. Be our guard in sin and strife;
be the leader of our life;
lest from thee we stray abroad,
stay our wayward feet, O Lord.

4. Quickened by the Spirit's grace
all thy holy will to trace
while we daily search thy Word,
wisdom true impart, O Lord.

5. Praise we, with the heavenly host,
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost;
thee would we with one accord
praise and magnify, O Lord.
