PRAYERS Woodie W. White
Bishop in Residence
HYMN Christ, Whose Glory Fills the Skies RATISBON
Christ, whose glory fills the skies, Christ the true the only light,
Sun of Righteousness, arise, triumph o’er the shades of night;
Dayspring from on high, be near; Daystar, in my heart appear.
Dark and cheerless is the morn unaccompanied by thee;
Joyless is the day’s return, till thy mercy’s beams I see;
Till they inward light impart, cheer my eyes and warm my heart.
Visit then this soul of mine; pierce the gloom of sin and grief;
Fill me, Radiancy divine, scatter all my unbelief;
More and more thyself display, shining to the perfect day
Words: Charles Wesley, 1740
