O Gladsome Light

1. 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!

2. 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.

3. 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.
