Brightly, O Father, when morning is breaking

Brightly, O Father, when morning is breaking,
shed o’er thy children the beams of thy love,
scattering the night-clouds of sorrow and darkness,
lifting our spirits to glories above.

Teach us, O Father, to work in the daytime,
soon, O, too soon, is the night coming on;
help us, while earnestly, actively striving,
to finish our work ere the daylight be gone.

Bravely, O Father, in life's daily conflict,
help us, thy soldiers, to combat each ill
crushing each foe that impedes our march onwards,
each impulse within us opposed to thy will.

Help us, O Father, in watching or waiting,
teach us in all things, thy way is the best;
guide us and keep us in devious pathways,
lead us at last to the mansions of rest.

Calmly, O Father, as life's day is closing,
bring us in peace to thy glorious home,
where trouble, and conflict, and labor, and watching,
darkness, and sorrow, and sin cannot come.
