Christ, whose glory fills the skies

Christ, whose glory fills the skies,
Christ, the true, the only light,
Sun of righteousness, arise,
triumph over the shades of night.
Day-spring from on high, be near;
Daystar, in my heart appear.
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,
glad my eyes and warm my heart.
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.
