Hymn/Song Information

SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS




So many are my doubts and fears,
And so perverse my ways,
No wonder that my joys are fled,
And all my notes of praise.


I bid my drooping soul rejoice,
But it will not obey;
As well could I a mountain move,
As drive my griefs away.


Jesus, thou sun of righteousness,
With glorious splendour rise;
And shed new beams of heavenly light
On these benighted eyes.


Dispel the darkness of my mind,
And set the prisoner free;
Though I should search the globe around,
There’s help in none but thee.
