LIGHT of those whose dreary dwelling

By A Collection of Hymns

      8s-7s. Isaiah ix. 2.
      1 LIGHT of those whose dreary dwelling
      Borders on the shades of death,
      Come, and by thy love's revealing
      Dissipate the clouds beneath:
      The new heaven and earth's Creator,
      In our deepest darkness rise,
      Scattering all the night of nature,
      Pouring eyesight on our eyes.

      2 Still we wait for thine appearing;
      Life and joy thy beams impart,
      Chasing all our fears, and cheering
      Every poor benighted heart:
      Come, and manifest the favour
      God hath for our ransomed race;
      Come, thou universal Saviour,
      Come, and bring the gospel grace.

      3 Save us in thy great compassion,
      O thou mild, pacific Prince;
      Give the knowledge of salvation,
      Give the pardon of our sins:
      By thy all-restoring merit
      Every burdened soul release;
      Every weary, wandering spirit
      Guide into thy perfect peace.
