54 ~ O Gladsome Light


O gladsome light
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 ourpouring;
Father of might unknown,
Thee His incarnate Son,
And Holy Spirit adoring.


To Thee of right belongs
All praise of holy songs,
O Son of God, lifegiver;
Thee therefore, O most high,
The world doth glorify
And shall exalt for ever.
