250. When Morning Lights the Eastern Skies

1 When morning lights the eastern skies,
O Lord, Thy mercy show;
On Thee alone my hope relies,
Let me Thy kindness know.

2 Teach me the way that I should go;
I lift my soul to Thee;
For refuge from my cruel foe
To Thee, O Lord, I flee.

3 Thou art my God, to Thee I pray:
Teach me Thy will to heed;
And in the right and perfect way
May Thy good Spirit lead.

4 For Thy Name’s sake, O gracious Lord,
Revive my soul and bless,
And in Thy faithfulness and love
Redeem me from distress.
