Matthew Smith (from Indelible Grace) just released a new album, Watch the Rising Day.
Here’s the first song. Lots of biblical, gospel-themes coming together here.
Dark and cheerless is the morn
Without Your hand to comfort me
Joyless is the day’s return
‘Til Your mercy’s beams I see
‘Til they inward light impart,
Glad my eyes and warm my heart
Christ, whose glory fills the skies,
You are the true, the only Light
Sun of Righteousness, arise,
Triumph over shades of night
You are the Light, You are the Light
Visit, then, this soul of mine,
Pierce the gloom of sin and grief
Fill me, Radiancy Divine,
Scatter all my unbelief
More and more Yourself display,
Shining to the perfect day
Dayspring from on high, be near
Day-star, in my heart appear.
