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 As the soft, refreshing dew
Falls upon the drooping flower,
So our fainting hearts renew
By Thy Spirit's quickening power;
Ne'er Thy bounteous grace withhold
From Thy fold.
3 Let the glow of Thy pure love
All our icy coldness banish;
In the radiance from above
May our doubts and fears all vanish,
That ere dying we may be
Found in Thee.
4 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
