Up from the deep, a day is dawning,
Slowly rising, a day is dawning.                 

Up sleepy head, a day is dawning,
Up from the dead, a day is dawning.

Rays so bright, an affection of light,
With much might, oh what a sight.

Oh such splendor, one can hardly contain,
Upward, upward, over the plane.

Such beauty, such beauty, who can explain,
A burst of color, over His domain!

Springmaid Resort, Myrtle Beach Sunrise – March 2010

    As a night owl and one who simply loves to sleep (long hours) I rarely see the sunrise, but I can't picture its intensity in your words.
