CHRIST, whose glory fills the skies, 2 p Dark and cheerless is the morn
Christ, the true, the only Light, Unaccompanied by Thee ;
Sun of Righteousness, arise,

Day-spring from on high, be near; cres 'Till they inward light impart,
Day-star, in my heart appear.

Glad my eyes, and warm my heart 3 Visit, then, this soul of mine ;

Pierce the gloom of sin and grief ; cres Fill me, Radiancy divine ;

Scatter all my unbelief :

More and more Thyself display,
| Shining to the perfect day. 'Ainer.
