463. Christ, Whose Glory Fills the Skies

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

2 Dark and cheerless is the morn
unaccompanied by thee;
joyless is the day's return
till thy mercy's beams I see,
till thy inward light impart,
glad my eyes, and warm my heart.

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.
