The Day Full of Grace

Representative Text

1 The day full of grace, which we behold
Now gently to view ascending
As God's gracious promises unfold,
Good cheer to the saints is lending,
And children of light in ev'ry land
Rejoice that the night is ending.

2 How blest was that gracious midnight hour
When God in our flesh was given.
The Dayspring appeared in light and pow'r
And spread o'er the darkened heaven.
Then rose o'er the world that Sun divine
Who gloom from our hearts has driven.

4 With joy we draw near our fatherland,
Our heavenly Father's dwelling,
Where ready for us his mansions stand,
Where heav'n with his saints is swelling,
And there we shall walk in endless light,
Forever his praises telling.
