1 To thee, O God! we homage pay,
Source of the light that rules the day!
Who, while he gilds all nature's frame,
Reflects thy rays, and speaks thy name.

2 In louder strains we sing that grace,
Which gives the sun of righteousness,
Whose nobler light salvation brings,
And scatters healing from his wings.

3 Stillon our hearts may Jesus shine
With beams of light and love divine!
Quicken'd by him, our souls shall live,
And, cheer'd by him, shall grow and thrive.

4 O may his glories stand confess'd,
From north to south, from east to west;
Successful may his gospel run,
Wide as the circuit of the sun.

5 When shall that radiant scene arise,
When, fix'd on high, in purer skies,
Christ all his lustre shall display
On all his saints through endless day!

Notes

To Thee, O God, we homage pay. P. Doddridge. [Christ, the Sun of Righteousness.] This hymn is No. viii. in the Doddridge manuscript, where it is entitled "The Sun of Righteousness. From Matt. iv. 2." It is in 6 stanzas of 4 lines. Although undated, its position in the D. MSS. shows it to be circa 1734. In Job Orton's edition of Doddridge's posthumous Hymns, &c, 1755, No. 173, the text differs somewhat from the ms. Orton's text is repeated in J. D. Humphreys's edition of the Hymns, &c, 1839, No. 194. It is in a few collections in Great Britain and America. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
