Text Information:

In ways reminiscent of the imagery of Lamentations 3:22–23, this popular Chinese text skillfully layers short phrases to create a picture of the dawning day as a context for affirming God’s mercies and for seeking God’s protection and provision. The tune name means “happy peace.”
