Representative Text

1 Come while the day is dawning,
Life's duties soon begin;
Come in life's early morning,
Free from the stain of sin.

Chorus:
Sing with rejoicing, Sing with rejoicing,
Lift ev'ry voice in pray'r and praise,
While now is dawning youth's happy morning
Let ev'ry voice in anthem raise.

2 Come in life's morning hours,
Ere has begun the day;
Gather hope's lovely flowers
Blooming along the way. [Chorus]

3 Whether by vale or mountain,
Whether by land or sea,
Drinking from love's pure fountain.
Happy we e'er shall be. [Chorus]

4 Come with your songs of gladness,
Come with your songs of praise,
Banish your tears and sadness,
Welcome this day of days. [Chorus]
