The dawning of a brighter day
Heralds our time of learning
As sin’s shadows melt in new rays 
Light is there for our turning

Away from what would to do us harm
Towards joy, warm and bright
In the early dawn it is not hard
To reflect on what is right

Even the very air we breathe
Is a loving loan from Heaven
Each day our first noble deed should be
To give thanks for all we have been given

The dawning of a brighter day heralds a time of forgiveness. Shadows of yesterday’s grief melt in the rays of early morn’s opportunity.

Spiritual self-esteem begins with the realization that each new morning is a gift from God. Even the air we breathe is a loving loan from him. He preserves us from day to day and supports us from one moment to another (see Mosiah 2:21).
Therefore, our first noble deed of the morning should be a humble prayer of gratitude. Scripture so counsels: “Pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto [you]: and [you] shall see his face with joy” (Job 33:26; see also Alma 34:21Alma 37:37).
