Daily Prayer: Morning

4. Christ, whose glory fills the skies

Six 7's

Ratisbon:

Werner's Choralbuch, 1815

Charles Wesley, 1740

Christ, whose glory fills the skies,

Christ, the true, the only Light,

Sun of Righteousness, arise!

Triumph o'er the shades of night:

Day-spring from on high, be near;

Day-star, in my heart appear.

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.

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.

Amen.
