Our Sun of Righteousness ~ Hymn

Our Sun of Righteousness

Resplendent sun! your brilliant beams
Should make my heart confess
A deeper awe of Him who is
Our Sun of Righteousness.
O little star, that sweetly shines
In heaven like a gem,
Your light recalls salvation’s star,
The Star of Bethlehem!

O falling rain, your welcome drops
Make drooping nature live;
Our Savior to all thirsting souls
Water of life will give.
O flower, opening to the sun,
Teach my heart ne’er to close
To Him whose pure, sweet life was like
The lily and the rose.

O guileless lamb, bring back to me
That life of toil and pain!
The sufferings of the heav’nly Lamb,
Who for my sins was slain.
Dear Savior, may we love Thee so,
That all good things may be
But mirrors, where our seeking eyes
Find images of Thee!

Words: Ida W. Harrison, 1893.
