Brightly shines the morning sun

Full Text

1 Brightly shines the morning sun,
Alike on you and me;
Softly falls the summer rain,
In blessing wide and free.
Evening breezes gently blow,
Moon and stars their radiance lend,
All alike his glory show,
His bounty has no end.

2 If the world of nature fair,
The handiwork of God,
Is a joy we all may share,
His love is still more broad.
Freer than the sun on high,
Gentler than the summer show'rs,
Wider than the starry sky,
His heart of love is ours.

3 Trust him then, in storm or calm,
To give the good we need;
Sorrow finds a heav'nly balm,
The soul from care is freed;
All for which we longing pray,
More than all, is yours and mine,
Rise, O rise, where faith can say,
Our birthright is divine.
