O see the lovely, golden sun,
His high, his heavenly pathway run!
What bids him leave, so fresh and bright,
His eastern throne of morning light?

A sea of fire, he sails on high;
Sheds light and warmth o’er earth and sky,
And never tires to sink and rest,
Till filled with joy is every breast.

Thus, day by day, again he’ll rise,
And walk in glory thro’ the skies;
From morn to night, from shore to shore,
He’ll rise to bless, till time is o’er.
