The sun shines on with glorious light,
And smiles upon this world of ours;
The moon with lustre soft and bright,
On earth her silver radiance pours.
‘Tis God who wreathes the brow of night,
With bands of burning, glitt’ring stars;
‘Tis God, with endless power and might,
Who moves the morning’s golden bars.
And He, through all these works sublime,
Looks down upon a favored race;
For Israel, from creation’s time,
Dwelt ‘neath the wing of heavenly grace.
The light divine of holy love
Still sheds on Judah’s broken band
A halo beaming from above,
And kindled by th’ Almighty’s hand.
