Of Each Newborn Day





Hail, hail the toll of morning’s bell
Our God did not forget
*The innocent brightness
Of a newborn day
Is lovely yet

From century to century
The dark dawn’s spark begets
And *the innocent brightness
Of a newborn day
Is lovely yet

Holy, holy, arise, my love
See what God’s grace hath let
Where *the innocent brightness
Of a newborn day
Is lovely yet

Time cannot dim the love of Him
Whereby its gauge is set
And *the innocent brightness
Of a newborn day
Is lovely yet

Arise, arise, for who can say
How many morns are left
Where *the innocent brightness
Of a newborn day
Is lovely yet
