The Morning Light Is Breaking

Author: Samuel Francis Smith Appears in 1,172 hymnals First Line: The morning light is breaking, the darkness disappears Lyrics: 1. The morning light is breaking, the darkness disappears; The sons of earth are waking, to penitential tears; Each breeze that sweeps the ocean brings tidings from afar Of nations in commotion, prepared for Zion’s war. 2. Rich dews of grace come o’er us, in many a gentle shower, And brighter scenes before us, are opening every hour; Each cry to Heaven going, abundant answers brings, And heav’nly winds are blowing, with peace upon their wings. 3. See heathen nations bending before the God we love, And thousand hearts ascending in gratitude above: While sinners, now confessing, the Gospel call obey, And seek the Savior’s blessing, a nation in a day. 4. Blest river of salvation, pursue thy onward way; Flow thou to every nation, nor in thy riches stay: Stay not till all the lowly triumphant reach their home; Stay not till all the holy proclaim, The Lord is come.

O God, in Whom We Live and Move

Author: Samuel Longfellow Meter: Appears in 36 hymnals Lyrics: 1. O God, in whom we live and move, Thy love is law, Thy law is love; Thy present Spirit waits to fill The soul which comes to do Thy will. 2. Unto thy children’s spirits teach Thy love, beyond the powers of speech; And make them know, with joyful awe, The encircling presence of Thy law. 3. Its patient working doth fulfill Man’s hope, and God’s all-perfect will, Nor suffers one true word or thought, Or deed of love, to come to naught. 4. Such faith, O God, our spirits fill, That we may work in patience still. Who works for justice, works for Thee; Who works in love, Thy child shall be. Used With Tune: GERMANY

Rise, My Soul, and Stretch Thy Wings

Author: Robert Seagrave Meter: Appears in 807 hymnals Lyrics: 1. Rise, my soul, and stretch thy wings, thy better portion trace; Rise from transitory things, toward Heaven, thy native place: Sun and moon and stars decay, time shall soon this earth remove; Rise, my soul, and haste away to seats prepared above. 2. Rivers to the ocean run, nor stay in all their course; Fire ascending seeks the sun; both speed them to their source: So my soul, that’s born of God, pants to view His glorious face, Upward tends to His abode, to rest in His embrace. 3. Fly me riches, fly me cares, whilst I that coast explore; Flattering world, with all thy snares, solicit me no more. Pilgrims fix not here their home; strangers tarry but a night; When the last dear morn is come, they’ll rise to joyful light. 4. Cease, ye pilgrims, cease to mourn, press onward to the prize; Soon thy Savior will return, triumphant in the skies: Yet a season, and you know happy entrance will be given All our sorrows left below, and earth exchanged for Heaven.

We hear Your voice and worship in holiness. 5. The Lord o’er the flood did reign; As King, He’s fore’er enthroned. The Lord gives His people strength for every day; With peace, they’re blessed and crowned. You’ve blessed us, Lord; we worship in holiness. Used With Tune: MARION
