Representative Text

Hallelujah! schöner Morgen,
schöner, als man denken mag!
Heute fühl ich keine Sorgen,
denn das ist ein lieber Tag,
der durch seine Lieblichkeit
recht das Innerste erfreut.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Amen!

1 Hallelujah! fairest morning!
Fairer than our words can say!
Down we lay the heavy burden
of our toil and care today,
while this morn of joy and love
brings fresh vigor from above.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Amen!

2 In the gladness of God’s worship
we will seek our joy today.
It is then we learn the fullness
of the grace for which we pray,
when the word of life is giv’n,
like the Savior’s voice from heav’n.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Amen!

3 Let the day with you be ended,
as with you it has begun;
and your blessing, God, be granted,
till earth’s days and weeks are done;
that at last your servants may
keep eternal Sabbath day.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Amen!
