Each morning when I wake I say,
I place my hand in God’s today;
I know He’ll walk close by my side
My every wandering step to guide.

He leads me with such tender care
When paths are dark and I despair
No need for me to understand
If I but hold fast to His hand.

My hand in His! No surer way
To walk in safety through each day
By His great bounty I am fed;
Warmed by His love, and comforted.

When at day’s end I seek my rest
And realize how much I’m blessed,
My thanks pour out to Him; and then
I place my hand in God’s again.
