C.M.


1
LIGHT of the waiting pilgrim's heart,
Star of the coming day,
Arise, and with Thy morning beams
Chase all our griefs away!
2
Come, blessèd Lord! bid every shore
And answering island sing
The praises of Thy royal Name,
And own Thee as their King.
3
Bid the whole earth, responsive now
To the bright world above,
Break forth in rapturous strains of joy
In memory of Thy love.
4
O Lord, Thy fair creation groans,
The air, the earth, the sea,
In unison with all our hearts,
And calls aloud for Thee.
5
Thine was the cross, with all its fruits
Of grace and peace divine;
Be Thine the crown of glory now,
The palm of vic'try Thine!

E. Denny (1796-1889)
