In The Glorious Hour of Dawning
J. F. Clendening
In the glorious hour of dawning
When the sun begins to peep
From above the farthest hilltops,
To arouse us from our sleep
Then we pray to God our Master
To direct us through the day,
To avoid the trials and pitfalls
That assail us on our way.
When the sun at high meridian,
The glory of the day,
Informs each weary pilgrim
That he's half along the way
Then we turn to God all glorious
For strength to stand the test
That will give us welcome entry
In that dwelling of the Blest.
The sun in the west at evening
Marks the closing of our day
Then we cry to God our Father
And to Him humbly pray
For grace that's all sufficient,
For love that's all sublime,
That will guard us through the Valley
And bring us Home in time.
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
