Christ My Song - 647
Stealing from the world away - Evening worship
(Ray Palmer/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
"In thy light shall we see light." (Psalm 36,9)
2. Yonder stars that gild the sky
shine but with a borrowed light;
we, unless thy light be nigh,
wander, wrapped in gloomy night.
3. Sun of Righteousness, dispel
all our darkness, doubts, and fears;
may thy light within us dwell
till eternal day appears.
4. Warm our hearts in prayer and praise,
lift our every thought above;
hear the grateful songs we raise,
fill us with thy perfect love.
Ray Palmer, in: The Poetical Works of Ray Palmer, 1876, 55-56.
