1. All praise to thee who safe hast kept,
 And hast refreshed me while I slept!
 Grant, Lord, when I from death awake,
 I may of endless life partake.

2. Lord, I my vows to thee renew;
 Disperse my sins as morning dew;
 Guard my first springs of thought and will,
 And with thy self my spirit fill.

3. Direct, control, suggest this day,
 All I design, or do, or say,
 That all my powers, with all their might,
 In thy sole glory may unite.

4. Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
 Praise him, all creatures here below;
 Praise him above, ye heavenly host;
 Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
