Theme: Psalms

Lyrics:
1.  As morning dawns, Lord, hear our cry.
    O sovereign God, now hear our sigh.
    As first light brings the sun's warm rays,
    Accept our sacrifice of praise.

2.  Before You, Lord, the wicked fall,
    And none shall dwell within Your hall.
    The proud shall never gain a place,
    Nor evil live to see Your face.

3.  Your steadfast love shall welcome all
    Who seek Your house and on You call.
    O lead us, Lord, in righteousness,
    As through this day Your name we bless.

4.  Let all who seek You then rejoice,
    And sing to You with joyful voice.
    For You shall bless the righteous, Lord.
    Forever be Your name adored.
