In The Early Morning

In the early morning,

With the sun's first rays.

All God's little children

Thank and pray and praise.

I, too, thanks would offer,

Jesus, Shepherd dear,

For Thy tender pasture,

For Thy guiding care.

And I would implore Thee,

Be with me this day,

Lest I from Thee wander,

Into danger stray. Amen.
