September 4

NEW every morning is the love
Our wakening and uprising prove;
Through sleep and darkness safely brought,
Restored to life, and power, and thought.

New mercies, each returning day,
Hover around us while we pray;
New perils past, new sins forgiven,
New thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven.
John Keble


IT is as much your duty to rise to pray, as to pray when you are risen. And if you are late at your prayers, you offer to God the prayers of an idle, slothful worshipper, that rises to prayers as idle servants rise to their labour.
William Law


AS the light of the sun in the morning returns to us through God’s power,—so through the Divine Agency the light of the mind rises anew when we awake; and without Him, we could no more bring back thought and moral feeling, than we could restore the dawn and the splendour of day.
William E. Channing
