Ere the Day Is Over

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

Ere the day is over,
Ere I close my eyes,
I would once more praise Thee,
Lifting hands up high;
Gazing up toward Heaven,
Seeking, Lord, Thy face,
Asking Thy forgiveness,
Coveting Thy grace;
Thanking Thee, dear Father,
For Thy matchless love,
And for peace I now know
Comes only from above.
Bless the ones I love, Lord;
Keep them in Thy care.
I thank Thee for the promise
That Thou art always there.
And Lord, when the new day
Brightens with the sun,
I will once more praise Thee
For all that Thou hast done.
“On my bed I remember you;
I think of you through the watches of the night.”
Psalm 63:6 NIV
