Christian Poem of the Month


The Only Light

taken from THE HYMNAL

of the Protestant Episcopal Church,

1889 edition, selection 225, pg. 187.


Christ, Whose glory fills the skies,

Christ, the true, the only light,

Sun of Righteousness, arise!

Triumph o'er the shades of night!

Day-sping 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,

Till Thy mercy's beams I see;

Till Thou 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, Radiancey divine!

Scatter all my unbelief!

More and more Thyself display,

Shining to the perfect day!
