1030. O Splendor of God's Glory Bright

1 O splendor of God’s glory bright,
from light eternal bringing light,
O Light of light, the fountain spring,
O Day, all days illumining.

2 Come, very Sun of heaven's love,
in lasting radiance from above,
and pour the Holy Spirit's ray
on all we think or do today.

3 Teach us to love with all our might;
drive envy out, remove all spite;
turn to the good each troubling care,
and give us grace our name to bear.

4 All glory be to God Most High;
to God the Son let praises rise;
whom with the Spirit we adore
forever and forevermore.
