Make me fit to meet the day,
To serve in mind and soul and body;
From early light to latest night,
To glory in God, and gladdening Spirit.
I’m thankful for a full night’s sleep,
Another day to dedicate to Christ,
A hope in purpose, a hearty family,
A walk with God in the ways of justice.
Not dearth of bread, nor death with pain,
Can tempt my heart to turn from the Cross;
For me He died to mend my past,
To suffer for Him is simple service.
