HEAD EASTWARD INTO TODAY


Lord, we thank you for the sun in the east
Whether today sees a crust or a feast,

We thank You for your bounty what ere may betide,
Await that small voice that beckons us inside,

If this day be our last, we await your "Well done,"
We've followed the example of your only son,

If we've given someone some help on their way
May their lives be fruitful, each in his way,

We wish no one ill before our eyes close in sleep,
May tomorrow bring a sojourn with You upon the deep.
