Make us new again today, O Lord! Just as you make the sun arise to produce a new day, may the Lord Jesus shine anew in our hearts.

Again, anew, to make the darkness flee,
To start all over again, the past removed. La 3.23
Cannot every hour be like this?
A new start, a clean break, the old refreshed?
As you will, O Lord, is my desire. 2Co 5.17
