Representative Text

1 Early will I wake, and heed the call,
The day-star to behold;
Early will I take what is for all,
The gift of love untold.

Refrain:
Early, early, early will I seek Him,
Early, early seek the blessed Lord;
Early, early, early will I seek Him,
Earnestly, joyfully, follow His word.

2 Early will I kneel, and at His feet
Accept the better part;
Early will I take His sayings sweet,
And hide them in my heart. [Refrain]

3 Early will I think of holy things,
And search the Scriptures o’er;
Early will I come to living springs,
And drink, and thirst no more. [Refrain]
