8. The morning light flingeth

1 The morning light flingeth
Its wakening ray;
And as the day bringeth
The work of the day,
The happy heart singeth,
Awake, and away!

Chorus:
Awake, awake, and away, away!
Awake, awake, and away, away!
The happy heart singeth,
Awake, and away!

2 No life can be dreary,
When work is delight;
Though evening be weary,
Rest cometh at night,
And all will be cheery,
If faithful and right. [Chorus]

3 When duty is pleasure,
And labour is joy,
How sweet is the leisure
Of ended employ!
Then only can pleasure
Be free from alloy. [Chorus]

Amen.
