Dayspring of Eternity
Dayspring of eternity!
Hide no more Thy radiant dawning!
Light from light’s exhaustless sea,
Shine on us
afresh this morning!
And dispel with glorious might
All our night.
Let Thy mercies’ morning dew
our conscience from its blindness:
Gladden life’s dry plains anew
With the rivers of Thy kindness;
Water daily us Thy flock
Let the glow of love destroy
Cold obedience faintly given,
Wake our hearts to love and joy
the flushing eastern heaven;
Let us truly rise ere yet
Life hath set.
Through this dark and tearful
Never be Thy light denied us.
O Thou glorious Sun of grace,
To yon world of gladness guide us,
When to joys that never
Ah! Thou Dayspring from on high
Grant that at Thy next appearing
We who in the graves do
May arise, Thy summons hearing,
And rejoice in our new life,
Far from strife.
Light us to those
Sun of grace, in glory shrouded;
Lead us through this vale of tears
To the land whose days unclouded,
Purest joy, and perfect
