1 We share a new day's dawn with Christ,
our lives refreshed, our hopes restored:
this is the day to serve our Lord!
And with this new day's dawn we rise
and lift our hearts up to the skies.

2 For heaven's grace we turn to prayer,
for truth and strength we read Christ's word:
here is the grace to serve our Lord!
And so by heaven's grace this day
we'll learn to walk in Jesus' way.

3 Our song shall be of perfect love
of Christ's redemption, faith's reward:
this is love's service to our Lord!
And perfect love shall be our song
till all our days to Christ belong.
