1. O Thou who turnest into morning
The shadows of the passing night,
Again to conscious life returning,
We bless Thee for the newborn light.

2. Grant us that light, to all unfailing
Who seek to do Thy perfect will,
That we, o’er doubt and fear prevailing,
May trust Thy good above all ill;

3. That we may offer Thee thanksgiving
Beyond our prayers and songs that rise
In greater faithfulness of living,
In deeper love through sacrifice.

Loring, Louisa Putnam. (1854-1924) of Boston and Pride's Crossing, Massachusetts, compiled Hymns of the Ages, published in 1904. Her literary and musical standards were high, and the book handsomely printed, but its appear was limited and it had to compete with several other excellent hymnbooks then on the market for use among Unitarians. It included her own morning hymn beginning "O Thou who turnest into morning" (1902), also included in The New Hymn and Tune Book, 1914. --Henry Wilder Foote, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
