Faith in Sunrise to Come

Put in Bay morningO greater Maker of this Thy great sun,
Give me the strength this one day’s race to run,
Fill me with light, fill me with sun-like strength,
Fill me with joy to rob the day its length.
Light from within, light that will outward shine,
Strength to make strong some weaker heart than mine,
Joy to make glad each soul that feels its touch;
Great Father of the sun, I ask this much.

From James Weldon Johnson’s poem, Prayer at Sunrise

The full moon is always during a high tide and since its closeness to Earth varies daily, the Super Full Moon has its position in space closest to Earth.
