1. We hail the rising Day Star—the lamp within our heart
Has banished all our darkness, and bid the night depart.
We felt our blind eyes open, and ceased our doubt-filled war,
When first we did receive Him, the bright and morning star.
2. Now icy pride is melted, and shadows fled away;
The sunrise is upon us, as stubborn hearts give way;
The testimony certain, prophetic truth proclaim:
Let light shine into darkness, erasing fear and shame.
3. With borrowed light reflecting the Spirit in our heart,
We spread the glorious tidings, to Earth’s remotest part;
Unseeing eyes will open, and deaf ears hear the voice:
See in the east arising the best and perfect choice.
4. And when our task is over, our time on Earth is done,
We lie down to await Him, the promised coming sun;
Earth’s final dawn arising, with light from shore to shore,
The bright eternal shining, the sun to set no more.
