Words: Charles Wesley Music: "Ratisbon", Harmony by William H. Havergal Alternate tunes: "Day-Star" (Samuel S. Wesley), "Lux Prima (Gounod)" (Charles F. Gounod) 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; Day-star, in my heart appear. Dark and cheerless is the morn Unaccompanied by Thee; Joyless is the day's return 'Til Thy mercy's beams I see; 'Til 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.
