Stanza Poetry Source by First Line
1
Once more, my soul, the rising day
Salutes thy waking eyes;
Once more, my voice, thy tribute pay
To Him that rules the skies.


Once more, my soul, the rising day, Stanza 1
2
Night unto night His name repeats,
The day renews the sound,
Wide as the heavíns on which He sits,
To turn the seasons round.


Once more, my soul, the rising day, Stanza 2
3
Dear God, let all my hours be Thine,
Whilst I enjoy the light,
Then shall my sun in smiles decline,
And bring a pleasing night.


Once more, my soul, the rising day, Stanza 6
