the light of day

Got an issue with someone or something? Want to whine a little? Here's the place to do it, or to get to know folks, or ask those questions that don't fit anywhere else.

Here's a hymn that meant something to me this morning as I'm off to work. It speaks to the light of day that we see as we are off to work and also the light of day sobriety brings to us. Also it speaks to the HP's ability to take care of us if we ask.

Thankful for the morning light
shining over earth and sea;
thankful for the sky so bright,
Creator, God, to you.
To you with all our hearts we pray,
now at the dawning of the day;
we know you have us in your care
and you will hear our prayer.

Thankful for each friend so dear,
whether they are proud or meek;
God, we ask that you will hear--
your holy face we seek.
To you our earliest thoughts are giv'n;
like incense may they rise to heav'n;
and from you now a blessing bear
in answer to our prayer.

Precious is the heart of love;
may, at length, such hearts be ours;
God, please send down from above
your love and truth divine.
And may they cleanse our willing souls
of earthly ills and make them whole;
for Christ did come to share our toil
and will not spurn our prayers.

cheers, and off to work,
