We praise Thee, Lord, with earliest morning ray;
We praise Thee with the glowing light of day:
All things that live and move, by sea and land,
Forever ready at Thy service stand.
The nations all are singing night and day,
Glory to Thee, the mighty God, for aye!
By Thee, through Thee, in Thee all beings are!
The listening earth repeats the song afar.
Thy name is great, Thy kingdom in us dwell;
Thy will constrain, and feed and guide us well:
Guard us, redeem us in the evil hour;
For Thine the glory, Lord, and Thine the power!
