        1. 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.

        2. Now, ere day fadeth quite,
        We see the evening light,
        Our wonted hymn outpouring,
        Father of might unknown,
        Thee, His incarnate Son,
        And Holy Ghost adoring.

        3. To Thee of right belongs
        All praise of holy songs,
        O Son of God, Life-giver;
        Thee, therefore, O Most High,
        The world doth glorify
        And shall exalt forever.
