An old hymn revisited. Number 651 in the Mennonite Hymnal.


1. I owe the Lord a morning song
Of gratitude and praise,
For the kind mercy He has shown
In lengthening out my days.
2. He kept me safe another night;
I see another day;
Now may His Spirit, as the light,
Direct me in His way.
New Chorus: I owe the Lord a Morning song,
but I will sing it all day long
Verse 1 (in Amos Herr's melody)
3. Keep me from danger and from sin;
Help me Thy will to do,
So that my heart be pure within;
And I Thy goodness know.
4. Keep me till Thou wilt call me hence,
Where never night can be;
And save me, Lord, for Jesus’ sake.
He shed His blood for me.
New Chorus twice,
verse 4 in 4 parts
New Chorus,
I owe the Lord a Morning Song.
