O Jesus, grant me hope and comfort; O let me ne’er in sorrow pine.
My heart, my soul, yea, all my being, O Jesus trust alone in Thee.
Thou Prince of Peace, Thou Pearl from heaven, True God, true Man,
My Morning Star. O come, Thou precious Sun most radiant,
Thy beams illumine my heart, my soul.
O Jesus, with Thy advent quiet my restless soul and anxious mind.
In true humility I welcome Thee, Jesus Christ, my Joy divine.
My thoughts, desires, and all my longing, I dedicate, O Christ, to Thee.
O come, Thou precious Sun most radiant, Thy beams illumine my heart, my soul.
