Author: J. M. Neale Appears in 48 hymnals Matching Instances: 2 Lyrics: 1 O very God of very God,
And very Light of Light,
Whose feet this earth's dark valley trod,
That so it might be bright;
2 Our hopes are weak, our fears are strong,
Thick darkness blinds our eyes;
Cold is the night; Thy people long
That Thou, their Sun, wouldst rise.
3 And even now, though dull and gray,
The east is brightening fast,
And kindling to the perfect day,
That never shall be past.
4 O guide us till our path is done,
And we have reached the shore
Where Thou, our everlasting Sun,
Art shining evermore!
5 We wait in faith, and turn our face
To where the daylight springs,
Till Thou shalt come our gloom to chase,
With healing in Thy wings. Topics: General Used With Tune: MOUNT CALVARY
