A Request

His mercy is new every morning....

Throughout this day Lord, help us say
Only kind and gentle things
May our hearts trust You, Oh God
As we face what this new day brings
And if the eventide should splay
Once more across the land and sea
And the wee hours we call today
Deepen and fold to history
May we have served with willing hands
And offered You a servant’s heart
Then as the twilight sweeps earth’s sands
Oh, may we know we did our part
