Morning Praise

I praise You, Lord, in this early morn,
For the privilege of being born,
For feeling the joy of living flow,
And all Your wonderful grace to know.

I Praise You for this beautiful world -
The brilliant skies above me furled,
The cool of breeze, the warmth of sun,
And to know another day begun.

I praise You, God, for strength and health,
For my portion of this world's wealth,
For sense to feel, for eyes to see,
For joy of knowing You love me.
