No. 11. HOLY AND BEAUTIFUL DAY.
After the German, J. V. B.
Moderato.

6

German.

1. Lo! the great sun in his glory, Bringeth his beams from the sea;
Lighting with red the green hillside, Purple and golden to see.
2. Sweetly with songs do we greet thee, Holy and beautiful day;
Cheerfully, joyfully meet thee, Singing our youth's happy lay.

HOLY AND BEAUTIFUL DAY--Concluded. 241

Solemn the stars have retreated, Vanished in majesty bright;
Stay with us, stay with our bright band, Where there is singing and joy,

And in the glowing ho-rizon, Shineth the angel of light.
Let not too quickly the sweet hours Our happy meeting destroy.

Lit-tle holes to bore,
Laying up her store?
To the sweetest flowers,
For the winter hours?

The sparrow builds her clever nest Of softest hay and moss:
'Tis God who shows them all the way. And gives their little skill,

Who told her how to weave it best,
And teaches children, if they pray,

Laying twigs across?
How to do his will.
