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, life-giver. You, therefore, O Most High,
the world does glorify and shall exalt forever.
