1. Morning is breaking
O'er mountain and plain,
The earth is awaking
From slumber again.
Welcome, sweet welcome,
We give to the day,
With holly and ivy,
And laurel and bay.

2. Lifting our voices
In worship and praise,
To Christ our Redeemer
An anthem we raise.
Angels no longer
Appear upon earth,
To tell the glad tidings
Of joy at His birth.

3. Visions of glory
No more on our sight
Will burse on the darkness
With heavenly light.
Welcome the morning
Whose beams round us shine;
Our Sun is the Saviour,
The light is divine.
