The distant light of a new day

Behold the first light on the horizon
A ray of hope in the darkest hour
Now the veil of night is ruptured
Let the tide of daybreak flow

Heavens of east are rekindled again
The last shade of the night swiftly fading away
When the sun rises up, shows its bright smiling face
In a cascade of light a new day has begun

Shine over the earth

Every morning is a friend returning
Each day a gift of heaven's light
Life in every form we know it
Beast and plant – all stem from you

Day after day you will shine over heaven and earth
High above in the sky you are ever enthroned
As a proof of God, or a God of your own
You're the centre, the source
From which all energy is derived

Time draws to a close
For now you're setting
The circle complete
Now enshrouded in eventide

We have no fear because
There is no night that is
Without an end so we
Wait for the first distant light

Of a new day, of a new day!
