Sleepy eyes open to a new dawn
As to our trysting place we are drawn
Daily battles for which to prepare
Seeking our God's providential care
Suiting up in the garment of praise
The first step we make in opening our days
As with our Lord we joyfully meet
A time of love and fellowship sweet
The Bible is open, face lifted in prayer
Warm sensations, certain God's there
Love that is given so real and so loud
With grace and with mercy that He has endowed
Taking up shield and sword for the fray
Faith and God's Word are donned as we pray
Three powerful enemies each day we must meet
With cunning and craft and trickery replete
The world, our flesh and the devil are they
Waiting to snare and carry away
No worries, no frets, and no need for regrets
For the victory is ours, it's already won
By Jesus our Savior, the redeeming Son
Our part in this battle that all of us face
Is keeping the faith, and trusting God's grace
Is claiming the victory in Jesus name
For He is our victor who bore all our shame
Powerfully mighty this one that I meet
Each morning and evening to sit at His feet
Though glorious and great, He's tender in heart
Compassionately faithful, He will wisdom impart
Freed from all that keeps us from love
Renewed each morning
Like a newly born dove
