The United Methodist Hymnal


As the Sun Doth Daily Rise

1.	As the sun doth daily rise, 
	brightening all the morning skies, 
	so to thee with one accord 
	lift we up our hearts, O Lord.

2.	Day by day provide us food, 
	for from thee come all things good; 
	strength unto our souls afford 
	from thy living bread, O Lord.

3.	Be our guard in sin and strife; 
	be the leader of our life; 
	lest from thee we stray abroad, 
	stay our wayward feet, O Lord.

4.	Quickened by the Spirit's grace 
	all thy holy will to trace 
	while we daily search thy Word, 
	wisdom true impart, O Lord.

5.	Praise we, with the heavenly host, 
	Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; 
	thee would we with one accord 
	praise and magnify, O Lord.
