1 Come, beloved of the Maker,
come, behold the Firstborn One;
see revealed creation's splendor
crowned in glory like the sun.

2 See the Morning-star now beckon
to those bound to doubt and might;
"Follow me," Christ call in welcome,
"come from darkness into light."

3 Follow to the birth of newness;
follow to the life of peace;
follow to the hill of anguish;
follow to the garden bliss.

4 There we too will burn and brighten,
God's resplendent work begun;
glory will ascend and heighten,
crowning us with glorious sun.

5 Christ, bright image of the Maker,
God, whose glory none may pass,
Spirit, sun of love and splendor,
bear us into light at last.
