97. O One with God the Father D.

St. Anselm:

Joseph Barnby, 1869

W. Walsham How, 1871

O One with God the Father

In majesty and might,

The brightness of his glory,

Eternal Light of Light;

O'er this our home of darkness

Thy rays are streaming now;

The shadows flee before thee,

The world's true Light art thou.

Yet, Lord, we see but darkly:

O heavenly Light, arise!

Dispel these mists that shroud us,

And hide thee from our eyes!

We long to track the footprints

That thou thyself hast trod;

We long to see the pathway

That leads to thee, our God.

O Jesus, shine around us

With radiance of thy grace;

O Jesus, turn upon us

The brightness of thy face.

We need no star to guide us,

As on our way we press,

If thou thy light vouchsafest,

O Son of Righteousness.
