11009. My God, Who Makes The Sun To Know

1 My God, who makes the sun to know
His proper hour to rise;
And to give light to all below,
Doth send him round the skies!

2 When from the chambers of the east
His morning race begins,
He never tires, nor stops to rest,
But round the world he shines.

3 So, like the sun, would I fulfill
The business of the day;
Begin my work betimes, and still
March on my heav’nly way.

4 Give me, O Lord, Thy early grace,
Nor let my soul complain
That the young morning of my day
Has all been spent in vain!
