1 Hail the day, when in the sky
Shone the Day-spring from on high;
When the star from Heaven displayed
Where the holy Child was laid.
2 Onward moving, that bright flame
Did the Savior’s birth proclaim;
And the Gentiles came to bring
Offerings to their infant king.
3 Lord of glory, may Thy light
Shine upon our darkened sight,
Till it guide us to the rest
Where Thy people shall be blest.
4 May it light us on the road
Leading to the throne of God;
And our offering then shall be
Hearts devoted, Lord, to Thee.
5 Hymns of glory and of praise,
Father, unto Thee we raise;
Praise to Thee, O Christ our king,
And the Holy Ghost, we sing.
