Hail, Holy Light! The World Rejoices

Author: Edwin P. Parker Meter: 9.8.9.8.8 Appears in 19 hymnals Lyrics: 1. Hail, holy light! The world rejoices As morning breaks and shadows fly; All nature blends her myriad voices To greet the dayspring from on high, To greet the dayspring from on high. 2. Break forth, in glory far excelling, O light eternal, love divine! Let Thy bright beams, all shades dispelling, Around us and within us shine, Around us and within us shine. 3. The heav’nly hosts fall down before Thee, And Holy! cry, nor ever rest; The saints on earth, with them, adore Thee, Creator, Savior, Spirit blest, Creator, Savior, Spirit blest. 4. O God, if we could duly praise Thee, Could we but voice the love we see, As sweet as song as angels raise Thee, Our Sabbath morning hymn should be, Our Sabbath morning hymn should be. 5. Accept, O Father, we entreat Thee, The worship which Thy children bring; O, grant us grace in Heav’n to greet Thee, And with all saints Thy love to sing, And with all saints Thy love to sing.
