If you are looking for a song to sing for Epiphany I think this must be the one. This text by Charles Wesley has been retuned more than any other ‘epiphany’ text. Although it would be an exercise in severe naval gazing it would be wonderful to plan a service where we actually sing each of the settings in a single service.

1. Christ, Whose glory fills the skies,
Christ, the true, the only light,
Sun of Righteousness, arise!
Triumph o’er the shades of night;
Day-spring from on high, be near;
Day-star, in my heart appear.
2. 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,
Glad my eyes, and warm my heart.
3. 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.
