As Morning breaks I think of you, O Lord,
and my desire is to serve You joyfully.
With gladness, I consecrate this day to Your Sacred Heart,
and offer whatever joys and sacrifices may come my way.
Thank You for the graces You will
all the love, all the beauty,
and the ways You will
answer my prayers.
Today, may I love my enemies,
and treat others as I would ask to be treated;
may I forgive seventy times seven and show mercy;
may I welcome the prodigal,
have compasSion for the Samaritan;
be a peace-maker
and love my neighbor unconditionally.
Take all my heart,
and strength, O Lord,
that this day may be truly lived
for Your greater honor and glory
and for the salvation
