1 /WRIST, Whose glory fills the skies, \J Christ, the true, the only Light, Sun of Righteousness, arise,
Triumph o'er the shades of night;

Unaccompanied by Thee;

Let Thy love's pure fire destroy

And rejoice in our new life,
Light us to those heavenly spheres,

On me in blessings came;

Again we bow the knee.

And guide us by Thine arm;
3 Let all our words and all our ways
Declare that we are Thine,
4 Let us ne'er turn away from Thee;
O Saviour, hold us fast,
