    With every morning I will kneel to pray
D5          E7sus4   D/F♯    Bm  A/C♯   D
    to be a blessing in this coming     day

    to wholly honour You.

D5          E7sus4    F♯m6   Bm   A/C♯   D
    my full attention to the ones I'm    with,

[3.] to Mid section
Verse 3: (chords as V2)
And in the evening, as my thoughts retell
this passing day let me remember well;
so that no bitterness takes root within my soul;
help me to let them go.
Verse 4: (chords as V2)
And in the night-time may my mind be free
to truly rest and be refreshed in sleep;
and by releasing every worry, every strain,
be free to start again.

Christ  to  comfort and restore.

‘Liturgy of the hours’ is the monastic practice of daily prayer at set points during the day.’

With every morning I will kneel to pray,
To be a blessing in this coming day
In everything I say and everything I do,
To wholly honor You.

At noon remind me through this day to give
My full attention to the ones I’m with,
Be mindful of those things around and those within,
And fully enter in.

Teach me the wisdom of remembering,
And give me the wisdom to forget.
Lead me,
Oh, teach me
To live each day for You.

And in the evening as my thoughts retell
This passing day let me remember well;
So that no bitterness takes root within my soul,
Help me to let them go.

And in the night-time may my mind be free
To truly rest and be refreshed in sleep;
And by releasing every worry, every strain,
Be free to start again.

Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me and before;
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore.

Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in peace and Christ in storm;
Christ in hearts of all who know me,
Christ in friend and stranger all.
