Your Sunday Hymn: Christ Whose Glory Fills the Skies

Christ, Whose Glory Fills the Skies sung by the St-Barnabas Anglican Church Choir of Ottawa, ON – Conductor : Wesley Warren.

Short but very sweet:

Lyrics:

Text: Charles Wesley, 1707-1788 
Music: J.G. Werner's Choralbuch; harm. by William H. Havergal 

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.
