Rise on us, Thyself revealing,
Rise and chase the clouds beneath.
In our deepest darkness rise ;
Pour the day upon our eyes.
Life and joy Thy beams impart;
Every meek and contrite heart.
Every burden'd soul release ; By the shining of Thy Spirit
Guide unto Thy perfect peace.
12. LOVE divine, all love excelling,
Joy of heaven, to earth come down ! Fix in us Thy humble dwelling,
All Thy faithful mercies crown. JEsu! Thou art all compassion,
Pure, unbounded love Thou art; Visit us with Thy salvation,
Enter every waiting heart.
Come, Almighty to deliver !
Let us all Thy grace receive; Suddenly return, and never,
Never more Thy temple leave : Thee would we be ever blessing,
Serve Thee as Thy hosts above, Pray, and praise Thee without ceasing,
Glory in Thy perfect love.
Finish then Thy new creation !
Pure and spotless may we be: Let us see Thy great salvation;
Perfectly restored in Thee ! Changed from glory into glory,
Till in heaven we take our place, Till we cast our crowns before Thee,
Lost in wonder, love, and praise.
