Hymn 267
This is the day of light

This is the day of light: Let there be light today; O Dayspring, rise upon our night And chase its gloom away. This is the day of rest: Our failing strength renew; On weary brain and troubled breast Shed Thou Thy freshening dew. This is the day of peace: Thy peace our spirits fill; Bid Thou the blasts of discord cease, The waves of strife be still. This is the day of prayer: Let earth to heaven draw near; Lift up our hearts to seek Thee there, Come down to meet us here. This is the first of days; Send forth Thy quick’ning breath, And wake dead souls to love and praise, O Vanquisher of death!
