1 Good morning, Brother Sunshine!
Good morning, Sister Song!
I humbly beg your pardon
If you’ve waited very long;
I thought I heard you tapping;
To shut you out were sin;
My heart is standing open,
Won’t you walk right in?

2 Good morning, Brother Gladness!
Good morning, Sister Smile!
They told me you were coming,
So I waited on awhile;
I’m lonely here without you,
A weary while its been;
My heart is standing open,
Won’t you walk right in?

3 Good morning, Brother Kindness!
Good morning, Sister Cheer!
I heard you were out calling,
So I waited for you here;
Someway I keep forgetting
I have to toil and spin,
When you are my companions;
Won’t you walk right in?
