Christ, Whose Glory Fills the Sky

The United Methodist Hymnal Number 173
Text: Charles Wesley, 1707-1788
Music: J.G. Werner's Choralbuch; harm. by William H. Havergal
Tune: RATISBON, Meter: 77.77.77

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 they inward light impart,
cheer 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.
