When you ask God in the morning
For His guidance through the day,
Thank Him for the many blessings
He in love has sent your way.
When you’re asking aid from Heaven
Mingle with your morning prayer
A word of praise and gratitude
For all His kindly care.
When you send up your petition
To the Throne of Grace on High,
Thank Him for the many favors
That His mercy does supply,
Be more mindful of the blessings
That His kindness does impart
And the Lord will doubly bless you
For the joy you brought His heart.
