Hymn/Song Information

Behold the sun how bright From yonder




Behold the sun, how bright
From yonder east he springs,
As if the soul of life and light
Were breathing from his wings.


So bright the gospel broke
Upon the souls of men;
So fresh the dreaming world awoke
In truthís full radiance then.


Before on sun arose,
Stars clustered through the sky;
But, O, how dim, how pale, were those,
To his one burning eye!


So truth lent many a ray,
To bless the Paganís night;
But, Lord, how faint, how cold, were they,
To Thy one glorious light!
