1Lord, in the morning Thou shalt hear
My voice ascending high;
To Thee will I direct my prayer,
To Thee lift up mine eye:
2Up to the hills, where Christ is gone
To plead for all His saints,
Presenting, at His Father’s throne,
Our songs and our complaints.
3Thou art a God, before whose sight
The wicked shall not stand;
Sinners shall ne’er be Thy delight,
Nor dwell at Thy right hand.
4But to Thy house will I resort,
To taste Thy mercies there;
I will frequent Thy holy court,
And worship in Thy fear.
5O may Thy Spirit guide my feet
In ways of righteousness;
Make every path of duty straight
And plain before my face.
