Come, Sun and Saviour,
to embrace Our gloomy world,
its weiry race,
As groom to bride, as bride to groom:
The wedding chamber, Mary's womb.
At your great Name, O Jesus, now
All knees must be bent,
all hearts must bow;
All things on earth with one accord,
Like those in heaven,
shall call you Lord.
Come in your holy might,
Redeem us for eternal day;
Defend us while we dwell below,
From all assults of our dreaded foe.
