328. Sun of Righteousness, arise

1 Sun of Righteousness, arise,
Chase the slumbers from our eyes!
O for one celestial ray
From the shining seats of day!

2 Melt my chains with heavenly fire;
Fervent love and strong desire
From thy love alone begin;
Thou canst break the power of sin.

3 Thou canst bid our spirits rise
Free and joyful to the skies;
Liberty and joy divine,
Sun of Righteousness, are thine.
