O Sun of righteousness, arise With healing in thy wing

Representative Text

1 O Sun of Righteousness, arise
With healing in thy wing,
To my diseas'd, my fainting soul,
Life and salvation bring.

2 These clouds of pride and sin dispel
By thy all-piercing beam;
Lighten mine eyes with faith, my heart
With holy hope inflame.

3 My mind by thy all-quick'ning pow'r,
From low desires set free;
Unite my scatter'd thoughts, and fix
My love entire on thee.

4 Father, thy long-lost son receive:
Saviour, thy purchase own;
Blest Comforter, with peace and joy
Thy new-made creature crown.

5 Eternal, undivided Lord,
Co-equal One and Three,
On thee all faith, all hope be plac'd,
All love be paid to thee.
