Editor: James Gibb (submitted 2010-11-22).   Score information: A4, 2 pages, 38 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: Transcribed from the tonic solfa version in The Anthem Book of the United Free Church of Scotland, 1905. The accompaniment is a reduction of the voice parts. There would presumably have been some harmonic accompaniment for the unison parts, but this is not available in the source; apart from the top line of the brief introduction.

O Dayspring! Brightness of the everlasting light and Sun of Righteousness;
Come, and enlighten them that sit in darkness, and in the shadow of death.
