1 Great God! my early vows to thee
With gratitude I'll bring;
And at the rosy dawn of day
Thy lofty praises sing.

2 Thou round the heavenly arch dost draw
A dark and sable veil,
And all the beauties of the world
From mortal eyes conceal.

3 Again thy sky with golden beams
Thy skilful hands adorn,
And paint with cheerful splendour gay
The fair ascending morn.

4 And as the gloomy night returns,
Or smiling day renews,
Thy constant goodness still my soul
With benefits pursues.

5 For this will I my vows to thee
With evening incense bring;
And at the rosy dawn of day
Thy lofty praises sing.
