Representative Text

1 Stars of night have now departed,
One by one they fade away;
And the morn with rosy fingers
Opens wide the gates of day.

Wake from slumber; wake, rejoicing;
Come and hail the blessed light;
Worship Him whose eye beholding
Kept us safely thro’ the night.

2 ‘Tis the hour of pure devotion;
Lord of love, inspire our lay,
While we sing our morning chorus,
While we greet this holy day. [Chorus]

3 May the pray’rs that now we offer,
Wafted far beyond the sky,
On the wings of faith ascending,
Reach the throne of God on high. [Chorus]
