1 The sun is on the land and sea,
The day begun;
Our morning hymn begins with Thee,
Blest Three in One;
Our praise shall rise continually
Till day is done.

2 Thy love was ever in our view,
Like stars, by night;
Thy gifts are every morning new,
O God of light;
Thy mercy, like the heavens' blue,
Fills all our sight.

3 We do not know what grief or care
The day may bring:
The heart shall find some gladness there
That loves its King;
The life that serves Thee everywhere
Can always sing.

4 All glory to the Father be,
With Christ the Son,
And, Holy Spirit, unto Thee,
Forever One;
All glory to the Trinity
While ages run!

Amen.
