O Sun of Justice

Full Text

1 O Sun of justice, Jesus Christ,
Dispel the darkness of our hearts,
Till your blest light makes night-time flee
And brings the joys your day imparts.

2 In this our "time acceptable"
Touch ev'ry heart with sorrow, Lord.
That, turned from sin, renewed by grace,
We may press on toward love's reward.

3 The day, your day, in beauty dawns
When in your light earth blooms anew;
Led back again to life's true way,
May we, forgiv'n, rejoice in you.

4 O loving Trinity, our God,
To you we bow through endless days,
And in your grace new-born we sing
New hymns of gratitude and praise.
