Morning, Noon and Evening Praise

Representative Text

1 When the morning breaks in splendor
O'er the valley, warm and tender,
Joyful praise our hearts would render
To our Father God on high;
Thro' the night, when all were sleeping,
We were guarded safe beneath his care,
When the stars their watch were keeping
In the calm, blue sky so fair.

Oh, the love, precious love,
He bestows from above!
Let our souls and all within us
Praise the Lord for all his love.

2 When the noontide hour is beaming,
Happy songs each bird is singing,
May our hearts in measure ringing,
Praise our Father God on high;
With a gentle hand he leads us,
He is still our patient, loving Friend,
And the hand we now are holding
Will protect us to the end. [Chorus]

3 When the evening winds are sighing,
And the light is softly dying,
Then, to nature's voice replying
Praise our Father on high;
He has crowned our life with mercy,
He has scattered blessings on our way,
And we hope to see and praise him
In the realms of endless day. [Chorus]
