Day and Night. 263
So till the evening of this morn My time shall then so well be spent,
That when the twilight shall return I may enjoy it with content,
And to Thy praise and honour say,
That this hath proved a happy day.
George Wither. 1641.
Christ, whose glory fills the skies, Christ, the true, the only Light,
Sun of Righteousness, arise, Triumph o'er the shades of night!
Day-spring 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 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 !
Charles Wesley. 1740.
