     11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: 13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. 14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? 18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. 19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.(KJV)

1. How lovely shines the morning star! 
In twilight sky it gleams afar; 
The reign of night is ended. 
Creation stirs to hail the light 
Whose glories now with radiance bright 
Stream forth in beauty splendid. 
Both far And near 
All things living Thanks are giving, 
Praise outpouring, 
Earth and sky the Lord adoring. 

2. Then haste, my soul, thy song to raise, 
Delay thou not thy Lord to praise, 
Bow down in adoration. 
For glory, Lord, to Thee belongs, 
Thy praise resounds in grateful songs, 
Thou Lord of all creation. 
Let all Recall 
Hymns of gladness Without sadness, 
For Thy favor 
And Thy mercy never waver. 

3. Though evil spirits through the night 
With hellish craft and watchful spite 
Came round me without number, 
Yet Thou, O Jesus, with Thy power 
Wast near me in that threatening hour, 
Didst guard me in my slumber. 
Praise be to Thee, 
My Contender And Defender, 
I’ll adore Thee 
While on earth I walk before Thee. 

4. Pour down Thy grace in cheering streams 
And warm my heart with mercy’s beams 
From heaven, Thy throne of beauty; 
Thy Spirit ever lead and guide 
That in my calling I abide 
And find my joy in duty. 
Send light And might 
That each measure, Plan and pleasure, 
Heavenward tending, 
E’er in Thee may find its ending. 

5. Keep grief, if this may be, away; 
If not, Thy will be done, I pray, 
My choice to Thine resigning. 
Then, O my heart, cast care aside, 
God through the cross His own hath tried; 
Bear loss without repining. 
Hope still Through ill; 
To God cleaving, Grace receiving, 
We shall wonder 
At God’s goodness here and yonder.
