1To Thee, my God and Savior,
My heart exulting sings,
Rejoicing in Thy favor,
Almighty King of kings,
I’ll celebrate Thy glory,
With all Thy saints above,
And tell the joyful story
Of Thy redeeming love.
2Soon as the morn with roses
Bedecks the dewy east,
And when the sun reposes
Upon the ocean’s breast,
My voice in supplication,
Well pleasèd, Thou shalt hear;
Oh, grant me Thy salvation,
And to my soul draw near.
3By Thee through life supported,
I pass the dangerous road,
With heavenly hosts escorted
Up to their bright abode;
There cast my crown before Thee,
Now all my conflicts o’er,
And day and night adore Thee–
What can an angel more? Amen.
Psalm5:3My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
Psalm96:1 O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth. 2 Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day. 3 Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people. 4 For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods. 5 For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens. 6 Honour and majesty are before him: strength and beauty are in his sanctuary. 7 Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength. 8 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts. 9 O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth. 10 Say among the heathen that the LORD reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously. 11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof. 12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice 13 Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.
Psalm96:2Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day.

Jude1:24Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
