Christ, whose glory fills the skies

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,
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 Thou 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.

I recite these lyrics as a devotion, usually in the morning.

Used to sing this song when I was teenager. Very refreshing hymn. I sing it now every morning in my prayer. Awesome hymn full of eternal truth.

I love this song! When I am not feeling so "spiritual" "overcoming" this song is an honest but truth-filled song that ushers me into His presence. Dark and cheerless is the morn unaccompanied by thee....so very true. Oh Lord impart Your inward light!

Dayspring from on high be near,

Daystar, in my heart appear.
