A Noble Hymn of Worship

Benjamin Schmolck, 1715.

Light of light, enlighten me,

Now anew the day is dawning;

Sun of grace, the shadows flee,

Brighten Thou my Sabbath morning.

With Thy joyous sunshine blest,

Happy is my day of rest!

Fount of all our joy and peace,

To Thy living waters lead me;

Thou from earth my soul release,

And with grace and mercy feed me.

Bless Thy Word, that it may prove

Rich in fruits that Thou dost love.

Kindle Thou the sacrifice

That upon my lips is lying;

Clear the shadows from mine eyes,

That, from every error flying,

No strange fire may in me glow

That Thine altar doth not know.

Let me with my heart today,

Holy, holy, holy, singing,

Rapt awhile from earth away,

All my soul to Thee upspringing,

Have a foretaste inly given,

How they worship Thee in heaven.
