Lyrics

O gladsome light, O grace
of our Creator’s face,
the eternal splendor wearing:
celestial, holy, blest,
our Savior Jesus Christ,
joyful in your appearing.
As fades the day’s last light,
we see the lamps of night
our common hymn outpouring;
O God of might unknown,
you, the incarnate Son,
and Spirit blest adoring.
To you of right belongs
all praise of holy songs,
O Son of God, Lifegiver;
you, therefore, O Most High,
the world does glorify
and shall exalt forever.
