Awake before the sun breaks the horizon
Eyes cast to the east to see and hear
The morning symphony You’ve written
New every morning to say You’re near.
The sky becomes an entire stage
As You provide humanity another day
With a reminder of Your great love
If our hearts but hear what you say.
In breathless minutes of anticipation
The horizon streaks where Your fingertips
Paint the sunrise of this moment, now
With swirls of colors that rise and dip.
The ocean reflects the music too
All nature participating as You choose
Thank You that I’m alive to see and hear
The harmony You choose to use.
Your music swells as clouds reflect
The beauty of this day You bring
Ocean waves carry forth the beat
As all creation joins to play and sing.
No greater movement man can produce
Sweeter to ear or eye than Yours anew
The Sunrise Symphony of a Holy God
Lights up the sky and morning dew.
