LORD OF ALL HOPEFULNESS, Lord of all joy,
whose trust, ever child-like, no cares can destroy,
Be there at our waking, and give us, we pray,
Your bliss in our hearts, Lord,
at the break of the day
LORD OF ALL EAGERNESS, Lord of all faith,
Whose strong hands were skilled
at the plane and the lathe,
Be there at our labors, and give us, we pray,
Your strength in our hearts, Lord,
at the noon of the day.
I love this song, but don’t know the name or the author. It is in Magnificat.
This hymn can be sung to the tune used for BE THOU MY VISION.
LET the Lord, your God, show us what way we should take and what we should do.
Let us put into God’s hands our heart, our soul, the deep recesses of our being wherein dwell those beliefs and thoughts that govern our actions, so that He may guide us in the ways of the Gospel. (Magnificat)
PRAYER: O GOD OUR FATHER, you sent your only Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, to be our way, our truth, and our life. At this morning hour, we life our hearts to you in prayer and ask that you will guide us through this day according to your will, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
