Hymn 194
1. Once more my soul, the rising day
Salutes my waking eyes;
And let my heart its tribute pay,
To him that rules the skies.

2. Night unto night his name repeats,
And day renews the sound,
Wide as the heav'ns on which he sits,
To turn the seasons round.

3. 'Tis he supports my mortal frame;
My tongue shall sing his praise;
And I will glory in his name
While he extends my days.

4. And when my mortal course is done,
And I must yield my breath;
O may my soul, bright as the sun,
Shine o'er the night of death.
