4 There behold the Day-spring rise,
Pouring light upon your eyes ;
5 Sing, ye morning-stars, again ;
God descends on earth to reign ;
6 *Hymns of glory and of praise,
Father, unto Thee we raise ;
Have seen a glorious Light;
In death's surrounding night.
To hail Thy rise, Thou better Sun,
The gathering nations come,
The harvest-treasures home.
3 For Thou our burden hast removed,
And quelled the oppressor's sway,
In Midian's evil day.
4. To us a Child of Hope is born,
To us a Son is given ;
Him, all the hosts of heaven.
For evermore adored,
The great and mighty Lord.
His reign no end shall know :
Jesu dulcis memoria.
No word is sung more sweet than this,
Than Jesus, Son of God Most High. 3 Jesu! the Hope of souls forlorn!
How good to them for sin that mourn !
4 Remain with us, O Lord, to-day,
In every heart Thy Grace display ;
5 All honour, laud, and glory be,
Jesu, Virgin-born, to Thee;
First Sunday after the Epiphany.
was the guiding star that led,
Where the Redeemer lay.
Now points to His abode ;
To guide us to our God.
The gracious call obey ;
The Christian's destined way. 4 O gladly tread the narrow path
While light and grace are given :
Shall reign with Him in heaven.
Divine crescebas puer.
stature grows the heavenly Child,
Prepared for sacrifice.
With parents mean and poor :
In dwelling-place obscure.
No earthly toil refuse,
An humble trade pursues.
At whose behest they fly,
And lays His glory by.
The Son we all adore,
7. Chandler. (tr.)
Bring gifts to Thee, their God and King !
Our hearts, our all, for tribute bring !
2 Jesu! the pure, the spotless Lamb,
Duteous, the legal rites to pay !
Whate'er rebellious nature say!
Nailed to the accursed shameful cross !
All shame, all grief, all pain, and loss !
And Conqueror from the grave didst rise !
A glorious life, that never dies !
Of men and angels sovereign King !
And there for ever grateful sing !
All honour, power, and love, and praise !
7. Austin and 7. Wesley.
