+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  Come, O Lord, like morning sunlight,

Making all life new and free;

For the daily task and challenge

May we rise renewed in thee.

2.  Come, O Lord, like ocean floodtides,

Flowing inland from the sea;

As the waters fill the shallows,

May our souls be filled with thee.

3.  Come, O Lord, like mountain breezes,

Freshening life in vale and lea;

In the heat and stress of duty

May our souls find strength in thee.

4.  Come, O Lord, like evening twilight,

Bringing peace on land and sea;

At the radiant close of labor

May our souls find rest in thee.
