Representative Text

1 Jesus, thou Sun or Righteousness,
All glorious and divine;
Thy people with thy presence bless,
In their assembles shine.

2 Thy healing beams alone can cheer
Hearts pain'd with inward grief;
The soul opprest with guilt and fear
In thee finds sweet releif.

3 If thou thy righteousness display
And make thy merits known;
Sinners shall learn thy wond'rous grace
And saints thy goodness own.

4 Our tongues shall thy redeeming love
With sacred rapture tell;
And loud resound Immanuel's praise,
Who saves from death and hell.
