See the golden sunlight streaming

Representative Text

1 See the golden sunlight streaming ever bright,
Over vale and mountain it is beaming fair;
Hear the sounds of happy voices ringing clear,
Singing, ringing thro' the balmy air.
Sing, O sing, gladly sing
Unto God who gives us all.

Praise his name forever,
Earth, in glad array,
Swells the gladsome chorus;
On this blessed Sabbath day,
Wake the sounding echoes
With the joyful singing;
May the sunshine of his glory
With us be.

2 Hear the songs of waving branches, floating on,
Soaring gently to the gleaming skies above;
Clear and sweet the birds are singing notes of joy,
Praises bringing to the God of love.
Sing, O sing, gladly sing
Unto God who gives us all. [Chorus]

3 All the world to joy awaking, with the songs
Ev'ry voice of Nature joins the jubilee,
In the choral song partaking, till the strains
Sweetly echo over land and sea.
Sing, O sing, gladly sing
Unto God who gives us all. [Chorus]
