1 As the sun shines out in the morning
And makes the whole world bright,
Let the Savior rise in your life, my friend
And scatter the gloom of night.
The sunrise life is the king friend,
To make this old world bright;
It scatters the darkness, brings the day,
And never fears the night.
2 As the birds begin in the morning
To sing their Maker’s praise,
With a prayer we should begin the day,
And songs to Jehovah raise. [Refrain]
3 In your sadness, turn your eyes Eastward;
Behold the golden dawn!
By the blessed Day-Spring, from darkened souls
All shadows may be withdrawn. [Refrain]
4 In the sunrise life there is comfort,
Poor heart by sorrow torn,
For the friend who bids you goodby tonight
Will meet you again at morn. [Refrain]Source: Calvary's Praises #119
