MORNING HYMN




Night’s gloomy shades are now withdrawn
The blushing morn appears,
And every object we behold,
A pleasing aspect wears.


The sun, arising from the east,
Its glories now displays;
And mountains, rivers, rocks and fields,
Reflect the gladdening rays.


All nature’s cheerful, light and gay,
And birds in tuneful strains,
Welcome the bright returning day,
Which gilds the flowery plains.


‘Tis this, then God with smiling face,
Revisits those he loves,
And by displays of pardoning grace,
Their anxious fears removes.


Mists, which the prospect once concealed,
No longer intervene:
But heaven and glory stand revealed,
Without a cloud between.


God is as sun, whose spreading light,
Drives darkness far away,
Dispels the horrors of the night,
And brings eternal day.
