How To Start The Day
From the crown of my head to the soles of my feet
I give Jesus my being complete,
For guidance and wisdom throughout this day,
Every step that I take, every word that I say.
Help me to treat others as I’d have them treat me
And as I forgive others, Dear Lord, forgive me.
Temper each word and act with thy love.
And give me the wisdom that comes from above.
Keep me from sickness, accidents and sin
And help me be patient and kind to all men,
Give faith and hope, I humbly pray
With courage and strength throughout the day.
I thank thee, for home and love,
For food and raiment — for gifts from above —
For Jesus who died to save me from sin,
For life everlasting through His name. Amen.
