1 I will sing when morning cometh,
And the shadows drift away,
And I wake with grateful spirit
To behold another day;
‘Tis the Lord who watches o’er me
Through the night so still and long,
And to him who ever heareth
I will lift a morning song.

Refrain:
I will sing, I will sing,
Making melody unto the Lord,
I will sing, I will sing,
Making melody unto the Lord.

2 I will sing when I am busy,
Toiling on in hope and cheer,
Happy in the many blessings
That along my path appear;
I will sing when I am weary
With the burdens that I bear,
For the Lord will ever keep me
In his tender love and care. [Refrain]

3 I will sing when evening cometh,
And the light it steals away,
And I rest amid the shadows,
From the duties of the day;
To the Lord who reigns forever
‘Mid the glad celestial throng,
To the Lord, my hope of heaven,
I will sing an evening song. [Refrain]
