[verse 1]
   A                      E
Oh, how lovely was the morning!

        E7             A

Radiant beamed the sun above.

          A                    E

Bees were humming, sweet birds singing,

      E       B7       E

Music ringing thru the grove,

     E7               A

When within the shady woodland

       E7                A

Joseph sought the God of love,

                       D

When within the shady woodland

       A           E7     A       

Joseph sought the God of love.



[verse 2]
   A                      E
Humbly kneeling, sweet appealing—


        E7             A
’Twas the boy’s first uttered prayer—

          A                    E
When the pow’rs of sin assailing


      E       B7       E

Filled his soul with deep despair;

        E7               A

But undaunted, still he trusted

       E7                A
In his Heav’nly Father’s care;

A
                       D

But undaunted, still he trusted

       A           E7     A       

In his Heav’nly Father’s care.



[verse 3]
   A                      E
Suddenly a light descended,


         E7             A
Brighter far than noonday sun,

          A                    E
And a shining, glorious pillar


      E       B7       E

O’er him fell, around him shone,

     E7               A

While appeared two heav’nly beings,

       E7                A
God the Father and the Son,
A

                       D

While appeared two heav’nly beings,

       A           E7     A       

God the Father and the Son.


[verse 4]
   A                      E
“Joseph, this is my Beloved;


        E7             A
Hear him!” Oh, how sweet the word!

          A                    E
Joseph’s humble prayer was answered,


      E       B7       E

And he listened to the Lord.

          E7               A

Oh, what rapture filled his bosom,

       E7                A
For he saw the living God;

A
                       D

Oh, what rapture filled his bosom,

       A           E7     A       

For he saw the living God.
