    Verse 1
    Christ, whose glory fills the skies,
    Christ, the true, the only Light,
    Sun of Righteousness, arise,
    Triumph o'er the shades of night;
    Dayspring from on high, be near;
    Day-star, in my heart appear.

    Verse 2
    Dark and cheerless is the morn
    Unaccompanied by Thee;
    Joyless is the day's return
    Till Thy mercy's beams I see;
    Till Thou inward light impart,
    Glad my eyes, and warm my heart.

    Verse 3
    Visit then this soul of mine,
    Pierce the gloom of sin and grief;
    Fill me, Radiancy divine,
    Scatter all my unbelief;
    More and more Thyself display,
    Shining to the perfect day.
