Verse 1:
E             Emaj7    A/E
Christ, whose glory    fills the skies,
E           Emaj7        C♯m    B
Christ, the true,    the only   light,
E      Emaj7       A
Sun of righteous - ness, arise,
        C♯m      B         E
Triumph o'er the shades of night:
B         E                A
Dayspring from on high, be near;
         C♯m   B       Emaj7   Amaj9   Emaj7   Amaj9  
Daystar in my  heart appear.
Verse 2:
E        Emaj7       A/E
Dark and cheerless   is the morn
E   Emaj7      C♯m       B
Unaccompa  -   nied by   Thee;
E       Emaj7     A
Joyless is the    day's return,
         C♯m       B       E
Till Thy mercy's   beams I see;
B         E              A
Till they inward light impart,
        C♯m    B    Emaj7   Amaj9   Emaj7   Amaj9  
Glad my eyes, and warm my heart.
Verse 3:
E          Emaj7     A/E
Visit then this      soul of mine;
E          Emaj7     C♯m      B
Pierce the gloom of  sin and  grief;
E        Emaj7       A
Fill me, radi  -  -  ance divine;
        C♯m     B   E
Scatter all my  unbelief;
B        E               A
More and more Thyself display,
        C♯m     B       E
Shining to the  perfect day.
B        E               A
More and more Thyself display,
        C♯m     B        Emaj7  Amaj9  Emaj7  Amaj9  E   
Shining to the  perfect day.

CHRIST WHOSE GLORY FILLS THE SKIES
Christ the true the only light
Sun of righteousness arise
Triumph o'er the shades of night
Day spring from on high be near
Day star 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
Glad 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
