                      THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL

        (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. The radiant sun shines in the skies,

        With joy from sleep we now arise.

        All praise to God, who through this night

        Hath kept us from the devil's might.

        2. Lord Jesus Christ, guide us this day;

        Keep sin and shame far from our way.

        Thy guardian angels to us send

        And let them to our wants attend.

        3. Direct our hearts to do Thy will

        And for Thy Word true love instil

        That we may do whate'er is right

        And ever pleasing in Thy sight.

        4. Crown all our labors with success,

        Each one in his own calling bless.

        May all we do or think or say

        Exalt and praise Thee, Lord, this day!
