O Morning Star, How Fair and Bright
Lyrics and .mp3 Download
1. O Morning Star, how fair and bright thou beamest forth in truth and light, O Sovereign meek and lowly! Thou Root of Jesse, David's Son, my Lord and Master, thou has won my heart to serve thee solely! Thou art holy, fair and glorious, all-victorious, rich in blessing, rule and might o'er all possessing.
2. Thou heavenly Brightness! Light divine! O deep within my heart now shine, and make thee there an altar! fill me with joy and strength to be thy member, ever joined to thee in love that cannot falter; toward thee longing doth possess me; turn and bless me; here in sadness eye and heart long for thy gladness. (Verse 3 subject to copyright)
