1 O Morning Star, O radiant Sun,
when will our hearts behold your dawn?
O Sun, arise; without your light
we grope in gloom and dark of night.
2 Our lives are frail--a fleeting breath.
We face our foe: the sting of death.
Stretch out your hand, Lord, hold us fast,
until the storms of life are past.
3 O Savior, rend the heavens wide;
come down, come down with mighty stride;
unlock the gates, the doors break down;
unbar the way to heaven’s crown.
4 There shall we all or praises bring
ever to you, our Savior King;
there shall we praise you and adore
forever and foreveremore.
