782. Christ, Whose Glory Fills The Skies

1 Christ, whose glory fills the skies,
Christ, the true, the only Light,
Sun of Righteousness, arise!
Triumph o'er the shades of night;
Dayspring from on high, be near;
Daystar, in my heart appear.

2 Dark and cheerless is the morn
Unaccompanied by you;
Joyless is the day's return,
Till your mercy's beams I view;
Till 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 yourself display,
Shining to the perfect day.
