133. O Light of Light, Love given birth

1. O Light of light, Love given birth;
Jesus, Redeemer of the earth:
more bright than day your face did show,
your raiment whiter than the snow.

2. Two prophets, who had faith to see,
with your elect found company,
the heavens above your glory named,
the Father's voice his Son proclaimed;

3. May all who seek to praise aright
through purer lives show forth your light.
To you, the King of glory, now
all faithful hearts adoring bow.
