Bright and blessèd morning,
How I love thy dawning,
Hark! the sounding bells;
Deep tones, is the calling,
On the ear ’tis falling,
Love and peace it tells.

Weary wanderer weeping,
God the Father seeking,
Hither, hither come;
O’er the heart is stealing
Love’s devoted feeling,
To the heav’nly One.

While the tones are pealing,
In the temple kneeling,
Join the Sabbath chime.
Emblem to us given,
Of the voice of Heaven,
Melody divine.
