Christian Worship Desiring Christ’s Triumph.
O thou Sun of glorious splendor,
Shine with healing in thy wing;
Chase away these shades of darkness;
Holy light and comfort bring.
Let the heralds of salvation
Round the world with joy proclaim,
Death and hell are spoiled and vanquished
Through the great Immanuel’s name.
Take thy power, almighty Saviour;
Claim the nations for thine own;
Reign, thou Lord of life and glory,
Till each heart becomes thy throne.
Then the earth, o’erspread with glory,
Decked with heavenly splendor bright
Shall be made Jehovah’s dwelling-
As at first, the Lord’s delight.
