Text: Charles Parkin, 1894-
Music: Joachim Neander, 1650-1680
Tune: UNSER HERRSCHER, Meter: 87.87.87

1. See the morning sun ascending,
radiant in the eastern sky;
hear the angel voices blending
in their praise to God on high!
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Glory be to God on high!

2. So may we, in lowly station,
join the choristers above;
singing with the whole creation,
praising thee for thy great love.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Glory be to God above!

3. For the loving-kindness ever
shed upon our earthly way;
for thy mercy, ceasing never,
for thy blessing day by day:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Glory be to God alway!

4. "Wisdom, honor, power, and blessing!"
with the angelic host we cry;
round thy throne, thy name confessing,
Lord, we would to thee draw nigh.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Glory be to God on high!
