We look to You
We lift our eyes up to the skies
Rosy with the dawn of new hope, new promises and chant our praises to You.

We look to You
When others disappoint or hurt us,
Even though our aching hearts can hold no more sadness,
We trust Your love will heal.

We look to You
Tired, worn, confused… but grateful
And we sing a morning song, and sometimes, a mourning song
And find your comforting Presence within our hearts.

We look to You
Friend, Guide, Companion and Light,
Leading us ever Home.

Amen.
