CHRIST, whose glory fills the skies,
Christ, the true, the only light; Sun of Righteousness, arise,
Triumph o'er the shades of night; Day-spring from on high, be near; Day-star, in our hearts
Dark and cheerless is the morn,
Unaccompanied by Thee; Joyless is the day's return
Till Thy mercy's beams we see ; Lord, Thy inward light impart, Cheering each benighted heart.
Visit every soul of Thine,
Pierce the gloom of sin and grief; Fill us, Lord, with light divine,
Scatter all our unbelief ;
To the Father, throned in heaven,
To the Saviour, Christ, His Son,
Everlasting Three in One :
TH in Thy Name, O Lord, we go,
Our daily labour to pursue ;
In all we think, or speak, or do.
O let us cheerfully fulfil ;
And prove Thy good and perfect will.
To spend for Thee what Thou hast given,
Till with Thy saints we enter heaven.
Let praise for evermore ascend :
The heavenly life that knows no end.
GLORY to Thee, my God, this night, Teach me to live, that I may dread
For all the blessings of the light ; The grave as little as my bed ;
Forgive me, Lord, for Thy dear Son, O let my soul on Thee repose !
To serve my God when I awake.
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
THROUGH the day Thy love has spared us;
Wearied, we lie down to rest :
JESUS, Thou our Guardian be ;
Pilgrims here on earth, and strangers,
Dwelling in the midst of foes,
And, when life's sad day is past,
