1 Would you have the morning gladness
Filling both your life and heart?
Would you know the joy and sweetness
That its freshness doth impart?
O, then, give yourself to Jesus;
Let Him wash your guilt away;
For the joy that pardon bringeth
Brighter is than dawn of day.

In His presence, in His presence,
In His presence is fulness of joy;
At His right hand there are pleasures,
There are pleasures forevermore.

2 Would you have the royal splendor
Of the noontide’s golden hour?
Would you feel the wondrous richness
Of its warm, life-giving pow’r?
Open wide your heart to Jesus;
Let Him be a welcome guest;
For the glory of His presence
Brighter is than sunshine blest. [Refrain]

3 Would you have the peace of evening,
With its calm and tranquil rest?
Would you have its tender blessing
Dwelling always in your breast?
Trust, then, everything to Jesus;
All you are and hope to be;
And the peace that passeth knowledge
Christ Himself will give to thee. [Refrain]
