Albert S. Reitz (1879–1966)


Let thy morn­ing thoughts be bright
With prais­es un­to God on high;
Let thy heart and voice, re­joic­ing,
All thy bless­ings mag­ni­fy.


Praise ye Je­ho­vah; praise His ho­ly name;
Praise ye Je­ho­vah, all ye ends of earth;
Praise ye His name, for­ev­er ex­alt it;
Let all the earth praise the name of the Lord.

Let thy noon­day hours be filled
With songs of glad­ness for thy king;
Gloomy days will ne’er o’er­take thee
When His prais­es you can sing.


Let the clos­ing hours of ev­en­ing
Hear thy heart­felt words of praise;
For His lov­ing care and keep­ing,
Praise Him through­out all thy days.
