Author: C. K. Von Rosenroth Hymnal: Hymnal for Church and Home (2nd ed.) #41 (1928) Meter: 188.8.131.52.7.3 Lyrics: 1 Dayspring of eternity,
Brightness of the Father's glory,
Dawn on us that we may see
Clouds and darkness flee before Thee;
Drive afar, with conquering might,
All our night.
2 Let thy grace, like morning dew,
Fall on hearts in Thee confiding;
Thy sweet comfort, ever new,
Fill our souls with strength abiding,
And Thy quickening eyes behold
Thy dear fold.
3 Give the flame of love, to burn
Till the bands of sin it breaketh,
Till, at each new day's return,
Purer light my soul awaketh:
O ere twilight come, let me
Rise to Thee.
4 Thou who hast gone up on high,
Grant that, when Thy trumpet soundeth,
When with glory, in the sky,
Thee Thy cloud of saints surroundeth,
We may stand among thine own,
Round Thy throne.
5 Light us to the golden shore,
O Thou rising sun of morning!
Lead where tears shall flow no more,
Where all sighs to songs are turning,
Where Thy glory sheds alway
Perfect day. Topics: Morning and Evening Languages: English
