A Hymn: Early Morning

Author:

Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days

Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.


The morning bright, with rosy light (tune "Hathersage") - pipe organ, St Mewan Church

The Composed Song

1. Very early in the morning

I will even seek Thee

Thou who art the God an’ Creator

Thou art the Most Holy One


2. Very early in the morning

When I was on my bed

And my mind even meditate on Thee

Like during the midnight watches


3. Very early in the morning

I ‘ll give my praise to Thee

‘Cause I slept and ‘am awaked

For thou hast sustained me


4. Very early in the morning

When I remember Thee

Thine joy that even filleth my heart

Exceedeth the joy of wine


5. Very early in the morning

My voice thou wilt even hear

Before I even leave my house

To go and do my work


6. Very early in the morning

I will even give thee thanks

‘Cause thou hast even preventest me

From sleeping the sleep of death


7. Oh Lord thou who art even my God

As I go out today

Thou shouldest keep me from all the troubles

That I give thee praise at night.
