Advent Hymnals

333. LORD OF ALL BEING

Christ in Song,

1.
Lord of all being, throned afar,
Thy glory flames from sun and star,
Center and soul of ev'ry sphere,
Yet to each loving heart how near!
Yet to each loving heart how near!

2.
Sun of our life, Thy quick'ning ray
Sheds on our path the glow of day;
Star of our hope, Thy softened light
Cheers the long watches of the night.
Cheers the long watches of the night.

3.
Our midnight is Thy smile withdrawn,
Our noontide is thy gracious dawn,
Our rainbow arch Thy mercy's sign,
All, save the clouds of sin, are Thine.
All, save the clouds of sin, are Thine.

4.
Lord of all life, below, above,
Whose light is truth, whose warmth is love,
Before Thy ever-blazing throne
We ask no luster of our own.
We ask no luster of our own.

5.
Grant us Thy truth to make us free,
And kindling hearts that burn for Thee,
Till all Thy living altars claim
One holy light, one heav'nly flame!
One holy light, one heav'nly flame.
