DAYSPRING, 315 - Southern Harmony
to the 1991 Revision version of this tune
to the Cooper book version of this tune
Christian, see the orient morning breaks along the heathen sky;
Lo! th'expected day is dawning, glorious dayspring from on high.
Hail the dayspring from on high!
Heathens at the sight are singing, morning wakes their tuneful lays;
Precious off'rings they are bringing, first fruits of more perfect days.
Zion's sun, salvation beaming, gilding now the radiant hills,
Rise and shine till brighter gleaming, all the world thy glory fills.
