Hymn/Song Information

ON A SPECIAL CHRISTIAN FESTIVAL OCCASION




The sun clear-shining after showers
may his own image view,
Reflected from a thousand flowers
In countless drops of dew.


If then a freshening breeze up-springs,
Above, around, beneath,
Like heavenward incense on its wings,
Their mingled odours breathe.


So! where the Sun of Righteousness
His cheering radiance sheds,
Where gracious rains have fallen to bless
The churchís garden-beds.


Christís ransomed tribes before him stand,
With his own glory bright;
Plants of his heavenly Fatherís hand,
And children of the light.


Then should the Spirit from above
A gale of Edenís blow,
As from a paradise of love,
How sweet their spices flow!


To-day, while thousands meet as one,
In may a holy place,
May he who is of all the Sun,
In each his image trace.
