A Beautiful Morning

Oh, what a beautiful morning,

Oh, what a lovely day,

God has sent the sunshine,

to drive the darkness away.

Oh, what a beautiful morning,

Oh, what a lovely day,

God sent His Son,

our sin debt to pay.

Oh, what a beautiful morning,

Oh, what a lovely day,

Because of God’s salvation,

we can sing,

and be happy today.
