1 Beautiful day, lovely thy light;
Holy each ray, nothing like night;
Cloudless the sky; peaceful my stay
Here in the sunlight of beautiful day.

Beautiful, beautiful day,
Evermore shine on my way,
Savior, I pray, keep me alway,
Safe in this beautiful day.

2 Beautiful day, calm was thy dawn;
Joyous the lay, blessed the morn,
When in my heart, over my way,
First shone the noontide of beautiful day. [Refrain]

3 Beautiful day, perfectly bright;
Jesus alway, boundless delight.
Bless all around, heav’n by the way,
Shining in fulness, oh, beautiful day. [Refrain]

4 Beautiful day, haven of rest;
Ev’ry one may come and be blest;
Glory to God, naught can dismay;
Christ is the light of this beautiful day. [Refrain]
