744. O Trinity of blessed light

1 O Trinity of blessed light,
O Unity of royal might,
the fiery sun now goes its way;
shed thou within our hearts thy ray.

2 To thee our morning song of praise,
to thee our evening prayer we raise;
O grant us with thy saints on high
to praise thee through eternity.

3 To God the Father, heav’nly Light,
to Christ revealed in earthly night,
to God the Holy Ghost we raise
our equal and unceasing praise.
