1 Let songs of praise arise
To God at early morn,
When golden beams from eastern skies
The mountain peaks adorn.

2 When plumaged songsters raise
Their varied notes of joy,
When blossoms breathe their fragrant praise,
Let praise our tongues employ.

3 At noontide, too, O Lord,
Thy praise shall be our theme,
When floods of burning light are poured
O’er mountain, vale and stream.

4 At evening’s starlit hour,
Still be His praise expressed,
When countless stars of light,
His power and watchful love attest.
