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
�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!
