Fairer than the Dawn

Oh Savior you are beautiful

fair beyond the sun

that’s lately run

its daily done

and dips to sea again.

Your ways are deeper than the sea,

and light danced ember waves.

The secret graves

of hidden caves

are known before your eyes.

Your eyes can pierce the blackest night

and thus you see through mine.

Despite the slime

of oft-times crime

You look, and know and love.

Your love the spangled morning rays

that race across the sky.

Your glory wings–the gulls that cry–

while far below th’unworthy spy

the beauty of your grace.
