54 - O Gladsome Light

O gladsome light, O grace
Of God the Father’s face,
The eternal splendor wearing;
Celestial holy blest,
Our Savior, Jesus Christ,
Joyful in Thine appearing.
Now e’er day fadeth quite,
We see the ev’ning light,
Our wonted hymn out pouring;
Father of might unknown,
Thee His incarnate Son,
And Holy Spirit adoring.
To Thee of right belongs
All praises of holy songs,
O Son of God, life giver;
Thee therefore, O most high
The world doth glorify
And shall exalt for ever.
