Representative Text

1. Like dews of the morning Thy mercies descend,
And blessings unnumbered our pathway attend;
We feel Thou art with us, we list to Thy voice;
O Jesus our Savior, in Thee we rejoice.

We praise Thee, we bless Thee,
O Savior divine,
We praise Thee, we bless Thee,
We praise Thee, we bless Thee,
O Savior divine;
All honor and glory forever be Thine.

2. Though trials befall us, and clouds may arise,
We know that the sunshine will break thro’ the skies;
In light or in darkness, whate’er it may be,
If Thou art still with us, then happy are we. [Refrain]

3. Like dew at the twilight, when nature, at rest,
Has folded her blossoms to sleep on her breast;
Anew with Thy blessings our cup overflows,
While gently from labor Thou bidd’st us repose. [Refrain]
