Albert S. Reitz


Let thy morning thoughts be bright
With praises unto God on high;
Let thy heart and voice, rejoicing,
All thy blessings magnify.


Praise ye Jehovah; praise His holy name;
Praise ye Jehovah, all ye ends of earth;
Praise ye His name, forever exalt it;
Let all the earth praise the name of the Lord.

Let thy noonday hours be filled
With songs of gladness for thy king;
Gloomy days will ne’er o’ertake thee
When His praises you can sing.


Let the closing hours of evening
Hear thy heartfelt words of praise;
For His loving care and keeping,
Praise Him throughout all thy days.
