Never star was in the sky,
Winter winds went wailing by,
Not a violet was in bloom,
Not a rainbow rimm’d the gloom.
But the light’s on cot and clod,
Earth is happy, and, thank God,
It’s morning, it’s morning, it’s morning!
Morning on the holly hills,
Meadows that enfold the rills,
Morning in the heav’ns of blue,
Morning in the eyes of you:
In the dear and dreaming eyes
Where the kind God made my skies,
It’s morning, it’s morning, it’s morning!
