Oh Realm of Light!

Oh realm of light! whose morning star
To Bethlehem's manger led the way,
Not yet upon our longing eyes
Shines the full splendor of thy day:
Yet still across the centuries fall,
Both strong and sweet, our Lord's command;
And still with steadfast faith we cry,
"Behold, the kingdom is at hand!"
