Break day of God O beak west light of heavenly skies

1.BREAK,day of God,O break,
weet light of heavenly skies!
I all for thee forsake,
And from my dead self rise:
O Lamb of God, whose love is light,
Shine on my soul, and all is bright.

2.Break, day of God, O break!
The night has lingered long;
Our hearts with sighing wake,
We weep for sin and wrong :
O Bright and Morning Star, draw near;
O Sun of Righteousness, appear.

3.Break, day of God, O break!
The earth with strife is worn;
The hills with thunder shake,
Hearts of the people mourn:
Break, day of God, sweet day of peace,
And bid the shout of warriors cease!

4.Break, day of God, O break,
Like to the days above!
Let purity awake,
And faith, and hope, and love:
But lo, we see the brightening sky;
The golden morn is drawing nigh.
