Begin the Day With God

Begin the Day With God

Begin the day with God!
  He is thy Sun and Day!
His is the radiance of thy dawn;
  To Him address thy way.

Sing a new song at morn!
  Join the glad woods and hills;
Join the fresh winds and seas and plains,
  Join the bright flowers and rills.

Sing thy first song to God!
  Not to thy fellow men;
Not to the creatures of His hand,
  But to the glorious One.

Take thy first walk with God!
  Let Him go forth with thee;
By stream, or sea, or mountain path,
  Seek still His company.

Thy first transaction be
  With God Himself above;
So shall thy business prosper well
  And all the day be love.

Lyrics: Horatius Bonar (1808-1889)

Music: Hans Georg Nageli (177301836)
