The glory of the morning


morning painting
Get up early and watch God make a morning.  The dull grey will give way as God pushes the sun towards the horizon, and there will be tints and hues of every shade, that will blend into one perfect light as the full-orbed sun bursts into view.  As the King of Day moves forth majestically, flooding the earth and every lowly vale, listen to the music of heaven’s choir as it sings of the Majesty of God and the glory of the morning.

In the holy hush of the early dawn
I hear a Voice
 “I am with you all the day
Rejoice ! Rejoice !

The clear pure light of the morning makes us long for truth in the heart, which alone can make us pure and clear as the morning, tune us up to the concert-pitch of the nature around us.  And the wind that blows from the sunrise makes us hope in God who first breathed into us the breath of life that he would at length so fill me with His breath, His mind, His spirit, that I should think only His thoughts.  What should we, humans, do without God’s nights and mornings ?
fog-morning
In the early morning hours
‘Twixt the night and day
While from earth the darkness passes
Silently away
Then ’tis sweet to talk with Him
In thy chamber still
For the coming day and duties
Ask to know His will.
Then, He’ll lead the way before you
Mountains laying low
Making desert places blossom
Sweetening Marah’s flow.
Would you know this life of triumph
Victory all the way ?
Then, put God in the beginning
Of every coming day.
