New Every Morning

Each morning, Lord, when I get up,
I bring to You my empty cup
To fill again and yet again
With Your refreshing, cleansing rain.

Release me from all gripping fear,
Assured that You are always near.
With confidence, my trust in You,
I'll face the tasks I have to do.

Not for tomorrow will I pray,
But seek Your grace for just today.
“New Every Morning,” You declare,
Are answers to my daily prayer!
