When the morning paints the sky. Bp. E. H. Bickersteth. [Christ, the Child's Example.] Written in 1880; published in his From Year to Year, 1883; and included in the Hymnal Companion, 1890. In the latter the author says, "This hymn was suggested by seeing the words 'What would Jesus do?' in illuminated letters on a card suspended in a children's orphanage."
