O Light That Knew No Dawn

Above:  The Hymn

Image Source = Kenneth Randolph Taylor

Hymn Source = The Church Hymnary (1927), Presbyterian

Original Greek Words by St. Gregory Nazanzen (325-390)

English Translation (1900) by John Brownlie (1859-1925); third stanza altered by Brownlie for The Church Hymnary (1927)

The original Brownlie version of that stanza:

That, cleansed from filthy stain,

I may meet homage give,

And, pure in heart, behold

And serve Thee while I live;

Clean hands in holy worship raise,

And Thee, O Christ my Saviour, praise.

https://archive.org/details/hymnsofgreekchur00brow, page 93

I drew also from James Moffatt’s Handbook to The Church Hymnary (1927).

1.  O Light that knew no dawn,

That shines to endless day,

All things in earth and heaven

Are lustred by Thy ray;

No eye can to Thy Throne ascend,

Nor mind Thy Brightness comprehend.

2.  Thy grace, O Father, give,

That I may serve in fear;

Above all boons, I pray,

Grant me Thy voice to hear;

From sin Thy child in mercy free,

And let me dwell in light with Thee.

3.  That, cleansed from stain of sin,

I may meet homage give,

And, pure in heart, behold

Thy beauty while I live;

Clean hands in holy worship raise,

And Thee, O Christ my Saviour,  praise.

4.   In supplication meek

To Thee I bend the knee;

O Christ, when Thou shalt come,

In love remember me,

And in Thy Kingdom, by Thy grace,

Grant me a humble servant’s place.

5.  Thy grace, O Father, give,

I humbly Thee implore;

And let Thy mercy bless

Thy servant more and more.

All grace and glory be to Thee,

From age to age eternally.

The King Shall Come

Hymn Source = Trinity Hymnal (1961), Orthodox Presbyterian Church

Words (1907) by John Brownlie (1859-1925), based on a Greek text

1.  The King shall come when morning dawns,

And light triumphant breaks;

When beauty gilds the eastern hills,

And life to joy awakes.

2.  Not as of old a little child

To bear, and fight, and die,

But crowned with glory like the sun

That lights the morning sky.

3.  O brighter than the rising morn

When he, victorious, rose,

And left the lonesome place of death,

Despite the rage of foes;

4.  O brighter than that glorious morn

Shall this fair morning be,

When Christ, our King, in beauty comes,

And we his face shall see.

5.  The King shall come when morning dawns,

And earth’s dark night is past:

O haste the rising of that morn,

The day that aye shall last.

6.  And let the endless bliss begin,

By weary saints foretold,

When right shall triumph over wrong,

And truth shall be extolled.

7.  The King shall come when morning dawns,

And light triumphant brings:

Hail, Christ the Lord! thy people pray,

Come quickly, King of kings.

Let Thy Blood in Mercy Poured, by John Brownlie   3 comments

Let Thy Blood, In Mercy Poured

Above:  Part of the Hymn

Image Source = Kenneth Randolph Taylor

John Brownlie (1859-1925) was a minister of the Free Church of Scotland then of the United Free Church of Scotland and a translator of many Greek hymns into English.

Hymn Source = The Hymnal 1982, of The Episcopal Church

1.  Let thy blood in mercy poured,

let thy gracious Body broken,

be to me, O gracious Lord,

of thy boundless love the broken.

Thou didst give thyself for me,

now I give myself to thee.

2.  Thou didst die that I might live;

blessed Lord, thou cam’st to save me;

all that love of God could give

Jesus by his sorrows gave me.

Thou didst give thyself for me,

now I give myself to thee.

3.  By the thorns that crowned thy brow,

by the spear-wound and the nailing,

by the pain and death, I now claim

O Christ, thy love unfailing.

Thou didst give thyself for me,

now I give myself to thee.

4.  Wilt thou own gift I bring?

All my penitence I give thee;

thou art my exalted King,

of thy matchless love forgive me.

Thou didst give thyself for me,

now I give myself to thee.
