475. Christ, Whose Glory Fills the Skies

1 Christ, whose glory fills the skies,
Christ, the true and only light,
Sun of righteousness, arise,
triumph o'er the shade of night;
day-spring from on high, be near;
day-star, in my heart appear.

2 Dark and cheerless is the morn
unaccompanied by you;
joyless is the day's return
till your mercy's beams I view:
till they inward light impart,
glad my eyes and warm my heart.

3 Visit, then, this soul of mine,
pierce the gloom of sin and grief;
fill me, radiancy divine;
scatter all my unbelief;
more and more yourself display,
shining to the perfect day!
