Suggested Uses(s)

Wonderful setting of the shape-note hymn tune Morning Song for SAB voices. May be sung unaccompanied as well. Text by John Brownlie, alt. Geoffrey Studdert-Kennedy.

The King shall come when morning dawns,
And light triumphant breaks,
When beauty gilds the eastern hills,
And life to joy awakes;
Then right shall triumph over wrong,
For all thy mercy's sake.

Come let your voice join angel throngs,
Shout with their shout of praise.
See how the giant sun soars up,
Great Lord of years and days;
So let the love of Jesus come
And set your soul ablaze.

The King shall come when morning dawns,
And light and beauty brings:
The world awakes to call thy name
Its praise now echoing;
Hail Christ the Lord, thy people pray,
Come quickly, King of Kings.
