1 O splendor of God’s glory bright,
from light eternal bringing light;
O Light of Light, light’s living spring,
true Day, all days illumining:

2 Come, Holy Sun of heavenly love,
rain down your radiance from above,
and to our inward hearts convey
the Holy Spirit’s cloudless ray.

3 O joyful be the passing day
with thoughts as clear as morning’s ray,
with faith like noontide shining bright,
our souls unshadowed by the night.

4 O Lord, with each returning morn,
your image to our heart is born;
O may we ever clearly view
our Savior and our God in you.

Text Information:

This morning hymn is based on a Latin text attributed to a 4th-century bishop. It weaves various images of Christ as Light with light-based descriptions of each day’s passing. It is set to a dance-like tune from at least the 15th century that enhances the energy in the text.
