'My Morning Prayer'

Early morning
Sun on the rise
Mercies so tender
And ever new
Your grace still
Amazes me
Your love overwhelms
This poor sin-stained
Heart of mine
Fill me with Your love
Transform me by Your
Body and Blood
Make me an instrument
Of Your peace...
And when I fall short
Failing to love like You
May I find Your Hand
And Your Sacred Heart
My refuge and my shelter
And forgiveness 
Through penance and
Rise again like the
Morning sun ... just a little
Closer to You
Than I was the day before
