Representative Text

1 Get up early! time is precious--
Waste it not in bed;
Get up early! while the dewdrops
O'er the fields are spread;
Get up early! when the red sun
First begins to rise;
Get up early! when the darkness
Fades from earth and skies.

2 Get up early! it is sinful
To be wasting time;
Get up early! while the dear birds
Sing their morning chime;
Get up early! while the flowers
Blush upon the sod;
Get up early! while all nature
Blesses nature's God.
