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.
