See the morning sunlight brighten,
Making glad the day;
Jesus shines from out the darkness,
Lighting up the way.
Let us gather in the sunbeams—
Life and beauty fair;
Let us stand before His presence,
Filled with glory there.


Blessèd sunlight, blessèd sunlight!
In a world so fair!
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
We will meet Thee there.

At the noontide, while we labor
In this world of care,
Let us feel Thy holy presence,
With us everywhere;
Teaching us the precious lessons,
As we journey on;
Filling us with peace and gladness,
Till the day is done.


As the twilight shadows gather,
And we seek our rest,
May we find sweet peace and com­fort
Pillowed on Thy breast.
Oh, that all the world might know Thee,
Loving Savior mine!
May we feel the sweet as­sur­ance,
All in all is Thine.
