In the Quiet of Early Morn

It’s in the quiet of early morn
I seek the Lord

Though others are fast asleep
The sun has yet to kiss the dawn

I meet with You
Before my day begins

I read from Your Word
You give me fresh eyes to see it anew

Scriptures I’ve read a dozen times before
Leap off the page and capture my attention

You give me wise counsel
For the day ahead

You are not a distant faraway God
But my loving Father who keeps His eye upon me

It’s in the quiet of early morn
I meet with my Heavenly Father above
