Representative Text

1 Happy birds are on the wing;
Hark! how loud and sweet they sing!
See that speck upon the sky;
'Tis a lark--I saw her fly.
Happy birds, I'm happy too,
I will skip and sing with you!
Happy birds, I'm happy too,
I will skip and sing with you!

2 But before I run to play,
Let me not forget to pray
To Him who kept me thro' the night,
Woke me with the morning light;
Gives me life, and health, and food,
Fills my soul with every good.
Gives me life, and health, and food,
Fills my soul with every good.

3 Lord, may every morning sun
See a better life begun!
May I love and serve thee more
Than I ever did before!
In my work and in my play
Be thou with me, Lord, to-day!
In my work and in my play
Be thou with me, Lord, to-day!
