In the Morning When I Rise

640px-Moon_in_Sunrise_SkyLord, in the morning when I rise …

Speak life to my bones
Command health to my soul
Break open my heart
Sing sweet amazing grace
Send forth Your Spirit
Throw open the gates
Cast light in the darkness
Lay open Your Word
Lead me to the Cross
Your blood streaming for me
A river of forgiveness
Oceans of love.

In the morning when I rise
New mercies I see
In the morning when I rise
You, Lord, enfold me.

    1. Glad you liked this! There just aren’t any words to do the sentiment justice and I know far better poets than I have tried. That quality of being washed in it, lost in it … what an awesome God we serve!
