I Will Wake the Dawn with Praises

Dawn and sunset, fierce and joyful,
Each reflect His mighty ways.
With the sea and sky before me,
I will give Him all my praise.

Stars will joy in praises from me,
“˜Lesser light’ will know my voice.
When I give my God His glory,
Night will hear me and rejoice.

Shout His glory, brothers, sisters;
Laud His name and do His will.
Like the sands upon the shoreline
Are the praises due Him still.

I will wake the dawn with praises!
I will speak His name abroad.
I will worship Him forever,
He, my Lord, my only God.
