1 I praise Thy name, O God of light,
For rest and safety through the night;
Beneath Thy wing, securely kept,
I closed my eyes and sweetly slept.
Redeemed from weariness, I rise
To greet the light with cheerful eyes;
And with the birds on joyful wing,
My soul would rise, and sweetly sing.

Refrain:
I praise Thy name, O God of light,
For rest and safety thro’ the night;
Beneath Thy wing, securely kept,
I closed my eyes and sweetly slept.

2 I thank Thee, Lord, for all Thy care,
For all the blessings that I share—
Life, reason, health, and home, and friends,
And every gift Thy goodness sends.
O let me never, never cease
To cherish trust and thankfulness;
From Thee, Thou maker of my frame,
Each undeservèd blessing came. [Refrain]

3 As numberless as stars of heaven
Are the rich bounties Thou hast given,
And fresh as dews, and sweet as flowers,
The love that smiles on all my hours.
O let me to Thy altar bring
A pure and grateful offering;
And let my thanks, as incense rise
In Christ, a pleasing sacrifice. [Refrain]
