O splendour of God’s glory bright
O splendour of God’s glory bright,
who now brings forth the light from light;
O Light, of light the fountain-spring,
O Day, our days illumining;
2. Come, very sun of truth and love,
come in your radiance from above,
and shed the Holy Spirit’s ray
on all we think or do today.
3. So shall our prayers to you ascend,
Father of glory without end,
Father of sovereign grace, for power
to conquer in temptation’s hour.
4. Teach us to work with all our might,
and Satan’s forces put to flight;
turn all to good that seems most ill;
help us our calling to fulfil.
5. O joyful be the approaching day,
our thoughts as pure as morning’s ray,
our faith like noonday’s glowing height,
our souls undimmed by shades of night.
6. All praise to God the Father be,
all praise to Christ eternally,
whom with the Spirit we adore
for ever and for evermore.
