1 Christ, whose glory fills the skies, Christ, the true, the only Light, Sun of Righteousness, arise! Triumph over shades of night; Dayspring from on high, be near; Day-star, in my heart appear!
2 Dark and cheerless is the morn unaccompanied by thee; joyless is the day’s return till thy mercy’s beams I see; as they inward light impart, glad my eyes, and warm my heart.
3 Visit then this soul of mine! Pierce the gloom of sin and grief! Fill me, radiancy divine; scatter all my unbelief; more and more thyself display, shining to the perfect day.
