The Rising Sun Has Chased the Night

Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Europe, 1840
1. The rising sun has chased the night,
And brought again the cheering light;
This mercy multiplies our days,
And calls us to renew our praise.
2. We laid us down, and sweetly slept,
The Lord our souls in safety kept;
We wake his goodness to proclaim,
And sing new honours to his name.
3. We know not what his will ordains,
But 'tis our joy that Jesus reigns;
Though dangers, snares, and foes abound,
The eternal arms will us surround.
4. Teach us to walk with thee to-day,
Our only care to keep thy way;
Ourselves to thee we would resign,
Content to know that we are thine.
