See how the morning sun

Full Text

1 See how the rising sun
Pursues his shining way,
And wide proclaims his Maker's praise,
With every bright'ning ray.

2 Thus would my rising soul
Its Heavenly Parent sing,
And to its great Original
The humble tribute bring.

3 Serene I laid me down
Beneath His guardian care:
I slept, and I awoke, and found
My kind Preserver near!

4 My life I would anew
Devote, O Lord, to Thee:
And in Thy blessed presence spend
A long eternity.

Amen.
