Some Minutes in the Morning

Some Minutes in the Morning

Psalm 5.3 dew

Some minutes in the morning,

            Ere the cares of life begin,

Ere the heart’s wide door is open

            For the world to enter in.

Oh, then alone with Jesus,

            In the silence of the morn,

In heavenly, sweet communion

            Let your every day be born,

In the quietude that blesses,

            With a prelude of repose,

Let your soul be soothed and softened

            As the dew revives the rose.


Some minutes in the morning

            Take your Bible in your hand,

And catch a glimpse of glory

            From the peaceful promised land.

It will linger still before you

            When you seek the busy mart,

And like flowers of hope will blossom

            Into beauty in your heart.

The precious words like jewels

            Will glisten all the day

With a rare refulgent glory

            That will brighten all the way!
