A morning hymn from ‘The Methodist Hymnal’ — circa 1932, ’35, and ’39.
Come, O Lord, like morning sunlight, Making all life new and free;
For the daily task and challenge, May we rise renewed in Thee.
Come, O Lord, like ocean flood tides, Flowing inland from the sea;
As the waters fill the shallows, May our souls be filled with Thee.
Come, O Lord, like mountain breezes, Freshening life in vale and sea;
In the heat and stress of duty, May our souls find strength in Thee.
Come, O Lord, like evening twilight, Bringing peace on land and sea;
At the radiant close of labor, May our souls find rest in Thee.
Milton S Littlefield, 1864 – 1934

I am a Married, Forgiven, Imperfect Follower of Christ.
I am a recovered alcoholic (since July 12, 1999) and an ordained minister of the Gospel of Christ (since July 6, 2002).
I have been saved from the grave (more then a few times) by the loving hand of the God and Father of our Lord, Christ Jesus.
My heart's desire is to meet the needs of others with the love of Christ as he directs and enables me to do so.
