New Guitar Transcription ELH 531

I've done a new transcription for Classical Guitar of ELH 531 "O Blessed Sun Whose Splendor" Tune: HEAVENLY LOVE by F. Mendelssohn. Meter 76 76 D. Transcription at TuxGuitar.

Listen to a midi version here (mp3 format):

O blessed sun whose splendor
Dispels the shades of night;
O Jesus, my defender,
My soul's supreme delight,
Though fortune should bereave me
Of all I love the best,
If thou thy love still leave me,
I freely give the rest.

I know no life divided,
O Lord of life, from thee;
In thee is life provided,
For all mankind and me;
I know no death, O Jesus,
Because I live in thee;
Thy death it is which frees us
From death eternally.

Lord, with this truth impress me,
And write it on my heart,
To comfort, cheer and bless me,
That thou my Saviour art.
Thy love it was which sought me,
Thyself unsought by me,
And for thy ransom bought me
To live for aye in thee.

The rest of my hymn transcriptions for Classical Guitar are here.
