It IS a good morning;
The new dawn arrives.
Blessed is the child of God
Upon Whom the soul thrives.

Good mid-day and afternoon;
As the minutes and hours unfold
Endless Praise to the Lord, our God
Who presents all moments as gold.

Good evening, approaching dusk;
As the minutes and hours tick by.
Glorious strands and ribbons of color
Encircle the huge expanse of sky.

Good night, moon-bright sky.
Velvety and jewel-bedecked above
Star-studded, blue-black night.
All gifts from our GOD of Love.

Rest thy weary head upon the pillow
Retire sweet spirit; set aside all care.
First give thanks and praise to our Father
Kneeling ~ with hands folded in prayer.
