The Radiant Sun Shines in the Skies
Nikolaus Herman, 1560; German text
|The radiant sun shines in the skies,|
With joy from sleep we now arise.
All praise to God, who through this night
Hath kept us from the devil's might.
2. Lord Jesus Christ, guide us this day;
|3. Direct our hearts to do Thy will|
And for Thy Word true love instil
That we may do whate'er is right
And ever pleasing in Thy sight.
4. Crown all our labors with success,
