Author: Charles Wesley (1707-1788) Hymnal: Church Hymnary (4th ed.) #578a (2005) Meter: 126.96.36.199.7.7 Hymnal Title: Church Hymnary (4th ed.) Lyrics: 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 thee;
joyless is the day’s return,
till thy mercy’s beams I see,
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 thyself display,
shining to the perfect day. Topics: Our Response to Christ In Devotion; Our Response to God in the morning and evening; Jesus Names and images for; Light; Morning Scripture: 2 Corinthians 4:6 Languages: English Tune Title: SKIES OF GLORY
