045 - The Sun Is on the Land
The sun is on the land and sea,
The day begun;
Our morning hymn begins with Thee,
Blest Three in One:
Our praise shall rise continually
Till day is done.
Thy love was ever in our view,
Like stars, by night;
Thy gifts are ev'ry morning new,
O God of light;
Thy mercy, like the heavens' blue,
Fills all our sight.
We do not know what grief or care
The day may bring:
The heart shall find some gladness there
That loves its King;
The life that serves Thee ev'rywhere
Can always sing.
All glory to the Father be,
With Christ the Son,
And, Holy Spirit, unto Thee,
All glory to the Trinity
While ages run.
