English Poetry, Isaac watts, meditation, prayer, Psalm
staiway in forest disappearing in strong fog

To thee, before the dawning light

Isaac Watts

To you, before the dawning light,
my gracious God, I pray;
I meditate your name by night,
and keep your law by day.

When midnight darkness veils the skies,
I call your works to mind;
my thoughts in hushed devotion rise,
and sweet acceptance find.

Throughout my day I’ll lift my hands,
and give you thanks in prayer;
your righteous providence demands
my praise for all your care.

My spirit joys to see your grace;
your promise bears me up;
and if salvation long delays,
your word supports my hope.
