That thence might spring the tender shoot,
The wounds of the diseased soul
Make thou with gracious freshness whole :
That she her sins in tears may steep,
To Thy commands allegiance pay;
So be Thy will, O Father, done;
Morning Hymn for Wednesday

Chase the darkness from the mind,
Chase the powers of night afar; Let not sleep our senses bind,

Christ, behold with kind regard,
What to Thee in faith we bear; Let the morning hymn be heard,
Herald to the morning prayer.
Prayer and hymn receive, addrest
To Thy Father, and to Thee, And Thy Holy Spirit blest,
Reigning to eternity.
