Thy Rays, O Sun of Justice, Send

John David Chambers


Lyrics / Letras

Thy rays, O Sun of justice send,
and all our sinful shadows rend;
With virtue light our souls once more,
and unto earth Thy day restore.

The time acceptable is here;
make our repentant hearts sincere;
Convert us with thy kindly care,
whom Thy longsuffering mercies spare.

Grant that for all our deep offense
we offer Thee meek penitence;
That Thy benign and sovereign grace
may these our grievous sins efface.
