1.  Dear Lord, who sought at dawn of day

The solitary woods to pray,

In quietness we come to ask

Thy presence for the daily task.

2.  O Master, who with kindly face

At noonday trod the market place,

We crave a brother’s smile and song

When mingling in the lovely throng.

3.  Thou wearied Christ, at eventide

Renewed upon the mountain side,

Restore us with thy mystic night

Before the falling of the night.

4.  Strong Pilot, who at midnight hour

Could calm the sea with gentle power,

Grant us the skill to aid the bark

Of those who drift in storm and dark.
