A Poor Brother's Hymnal
Friday, March 03, 2006
  Lord Jesus, Son of Righteousness
Lord Jesus, Sun of Righteousness,
Shine in our hearts, we pray;
Dispel the gloom that shades our minds
And be to us as day.

Give guidance to our wandering ways,
Forgive us, Lord, our sin;
Restore us by Your loving care
To peace and joy within.

Lord, grant that we in penitence
May offer You our praise,
And through Your saving sacrifice
Receive your gift of grace.

Now nearer draws the day of days
When paradise shall bloom,
When we shall be at one with you,
Lord, risen from the tomb.

The universe your glory shows,
Blest Father, Spirit, Son;
We shall acclaim you majesty,
Eternal Three in One.

All my favorite hymns. Most of them are from before the Reformation.
