Rise like the dawn, Lord,
and let your sun's rays
warm the frost off my heart
and heal the sadness of my soul...
Disperse the gloomy clouds
of all my anxious fears
and chase from the corners of my heart
what keeps me from the joy you bring...
Draw me from my own darkness
into the light of your presence
and let me know the peace you offer,
the light in which I'm bathed...
In these dark December days
and in all the seasons of my soul,
draw near, dear Lord, warm and bright,
and be the light upon my path...
O come, O come, Emmanuel!
