1. Light of those whose dreary dwelling
    Borders on the shades of death,
Come, and by Thy love revealing
    Dissipate the clouds beneath.

2. The new heaven and earth’s Creator,
    In our deepest darkness rise,
Scatt’ring all the night of nature,
    Pouring sight upon our eyes.

3. Still we wait for Thine appearing;
    Life and joy Thy beams impart,
Chasing all our fears, and cheering
    Every poor benighted heart.
