Their thousand notes of praise;
And all that by His mercy live,
To God their offering raise.

3 Thus, like the morning, calm and clear,

The spring of heaven's eternal year
Shall dawn on earth and skies.

4 No winter there, no shades of night,
Obscure those mansion blest,
Where, in the happy fields of light,
The weary are at rest.
