Awake with dawn I greet this day

And celebrate with joyous heart

The dark of night now long away

 

The dark begone and don’t delay

Farewell to night I must depart

Awake with dawn I greet this day

 

I long to have the morning stay

To keep it tucked inside my heart

The dark of night now long away

 

Swiftly now the morning will fray

Beauty she gave of natures art

Awake with dawn I greet this day

 

The close of night I hope and pray

The dawn brings us a brand new start

The dark of night now long away

 

Those of us who cherish this way

Spurn the night that we know must start

Awake with dawn I greet this day

The dark of night now long away
