FIT  FOR  THE  TASK

God who made the earth and heaven,

Darkness and light,

Who the day for toil has given,

For rest the night,

May Your angels guard, defend us,

Slumber sweet Your mercy send us,

Holy dreams and hopes attend us,

O God most wise!

When the constant sun returning

Unseals our eyes,

May we, born a new like morning,

To labor rise;

Fit us for the task that calls us,

Let not ease and self enthrall us,

Strong through You whate'er befall us,

O God most wise!
