Christ the true and only light,
He knows our mournful plight…
The one who shows the way–
He’s with us from day-to-day.
Oh Christ, morning star of hope
You ae my strength to help me cope…
My day does not start, it’s true,
Until I’ve received blessing from you.
Before from my bed I rise
It is you who opens my eyes…
My praise of you is just and right,
You stand guard throughout the night!
You lead me in work and play,
You are the breadth of my day…
You give both task and rest
And by your love I am truly blessed.
