Theme: Morning and Opening Hymns

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.
