Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Representative Text

1 In the morning of life we are singing,
Our hearts to the Lord we are bringing;
Now the bells of the gospel are ringing,
Proclaiming redeeming love;
Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
In the morning of life we’re singing.

Refrain:
Come with rejoicing, gratitude voicing,
Praising our Saviour, boundless in grace;
Come with rejoicing, gratitude voicing,
Come! In the morning of life, we will seek His face.

2 In the morning of life we are telling
Of goodness and mercy excelling;
Blessed story, the darkness dispelling,
Proclaiming redeeming love;
Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
In the morning of life we’re singing. [Refrain]

3 In the morning of life we would render
A service of joy, sweet and tender;
Lighting souls with the heavenly splendor,
Proclaiming redeeming love;
Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
In the morning of life we’re singing. [Refrain]
