Come into the daylight's splendour, there with joy your praises render to the Lord whose grace unbounded has this royal banquet founded: though all other powers excelling, with my soul he makes his dwelling. 2 Lord, I bow before you lowly, filled with joy most deep and holy, as with trembling awe and wonder all your mighty works I ponder - how, by mystery surrounded, depth no-one has ever sounded, none may dare to pierce unbidden secrets that in you are hidden. 3 Shining sun, my life you brighten, radiance, you my soul enlighten; joy, the best of all our knowing, fountain, swiftly in me flowing: at your feet I kneel, my Maker - let me be a fit partaker of this sacred food from heaven, for our good, your glory, given. 4 Jesus, bread of life, I pray you, let me gladly here obey you; never to my hurt invited, always by your love delighted: from this banquet let me measure, Lord, how vast and deep its treasure; through the gifts your hands have given let me be your guest in heaven.
