Christ, Whose Glory Fills The Skies

Christ, whose glory fills the skies, Christ, the true, the only light, Sun of Righteousness, arise, triumph o'er the shades of night; Dayspring from on high, be near; Daystar, in my heart appear.

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, cheer my eyes and warm my heart.

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.

Written by Charles Wesley, 1740.

 

If you like the music from the video above check out the entire album from Pilgrim, it's quickly become one of my favorites.

The Christian on Mission

What instruction did Luther give to Christians on how to bear witness to Christ?

If he is in a place where there are no Christians he needs no other call than to be a Christian… Here it is his duty to preach and to teach the gospel to non-Christians, because of the duty of brotherly love, even though no man calls him to do so.[1]
