1. Morning Watch

From the recording My Treasure

Morning Watch

This hymn is about worshiping and praising the Lord in the dark of night as well as welcoming the morning with Him. Although daytime is to be treasured, staying watchful in prayer at night and awaiting dawn with the Lord are amazing ways for today’s Christians to enjoy His special presence and overcome dark times.

“I prevented the dawning of the morning, and cried: I hoped in Thy word. Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that I might meditate in Thy word. Hear my voice according unto Thy lovingkindness: O Lord, quicken me according to Thy judgment.” (Psalms 119:147-149)

“It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in Him.” (Lam 3:22-24)



O Jesus Lord,
Right now I am here,
Kneeling before this pane.

As I await the morning dawn
I feel my heart rejoice.

I thought of all
Your victories.
All you have conquered, saved,
and done.

Even in darkness,
Still You are sitting
Upon the throne.
You alone!


Oh Lord, You are worthy,
You are worthy of praise
Oh Lord, you are worthy
Before the dawn of this day
Let me watch throughout the night
Meditating on your word
In accordance with your love, hear my voice, Lord

Oh Jesus Lord
Now from afar
I see the first gleams of day

The morning’s new
Your mercy’s fresh
to open up this day

Lord, sanctify
my life today
as I now give myself to You

Every step I make
Every breath I take
Keep me in you, my hiding place.
