Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Europe, 1840

Hymn 203
1. See how the morning sun
Pursues his shining way,
And wide proclaims his Maker's praise
With every bright'ning ray.

2. Thus would my rising soul
Of heaven's parent sing,
And spread the truth from pole to pole
Of Jesus, my great King.

3. In faith I laid me down
Beneath his guardian care,
I slept and I awoke, and found
That he was just as near.

4. O Lord, I want to live
So humble unto thee,
That in thy presence I may spend
A blest eternity.

5. Give me thy Spirit, then,
To guide me through this day,
That I may be upright and just,
And always watch and pray.
