Christian K. von Rosenroth, 1684; German text
Come, Thou Bright and Morning Star,|
Light of light, without beginning!
Shine upon us from afar
That we may be kept from sinning.
Drive away by Thy clear light
Our dark night.
3. Let Thy grace, like morning dew
4. May Thy fervent love destroy|
Our cold works, in us awaking
Ardent zeal and holy joy
At the purple morn's first breaking.
Let us truly rise ere yet
Life has set.
6. Ah! thou Dayspring from on high,
7. Light us to those heavenly spheres,|
Sun of grace, in glory shrouded;
Lead us through this vale of tears
To the land where days unclouded,
Purest joy, and perfect peace
