Hymn/Song Information

Ye golden lamps of heaven farewell With all your




Ye golden lamps of heaven farewell,
With all your feeble light;
Farewell thou ever changing moon,
Pale empress of the night.


And thou refulgent orb of day,
In brighter flames arrayed;
My soul that springs beyond thy sphere,
No more demands thy aid.


Ye stars are but the shining dust
Of my divine abode,
The pavement of those heavenly courts,
Where I shall reign with God.


The Father of eternal light
Shall there his beams display;
Nor shall one momentís darkness mix
With that unvaried day.


No more the drops of piercing grief
Shall swell into mine yes;
Nor the meridian sun decline,
Amid those brighter skies.


There all the millions of his saints
Shall in one song unite;
And each the bliss of all shall view
With infinite delight.


---Alternative verses---


And thou refulgent orb of day,
In brighter flames arrayed;
My soul which springs beyond thy sphere,
No more demands thy aid.
