406. See the Morning Sun Ascending

1 See the morning sun ascending,
radiant in the eastern sky;
hear the angel voices blending
in their praise to God on high!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Glory be to God on high!

2 So may we, in lowly station,
join the choristers above;
singing with the whole creation,
praising thee for your great love.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Glory be to God above!

3 For your loving-kindness ever
shed upon our earthly way;
for your mercy, ceasing never,
for your blessing day by day:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Glory be to God alway!

4 "Wisdom, honour, power, and blessing!"
with the angelic host we cry;
round your throne, your name confessing,
now we would to you draw nigh.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Glory be to God on high!
