1 How brightly beams the morning star!
What sudden radiance from afar
Doth cheer us with its shining?
Brightness of God that breaks our night
And fills the darkened souls with light,
Who long for truth were pining!
Newly, truly, God's Word feeds us,
Rightly leads us,
Praise, O praise such love o'erflowing!
2 Through thee alone can we be blest;
Then deep be on our hearts imprest
The love that thou hast borne us;
So make us ready to fulfill
With ardent zeal thy holy will,
Though men may vex or scorn us;
Hold us, fold us, lest we fail thee,
Lo, we hail thee,
Long to know thee!
All we are and have we owe thee.
3 All praise to him who come to save,
Who conquered death and scorned the grave;
Each day new praise resoundeth
To him, the Life who once was slain,
The friend whom none shall trust in vain,
Whose grace for aye aboundeth;
Sing then, ring then, tell the story
Of his glory,
Till his praises
Flood with light earth's darkest mazes!
