1 Father, who the light this day
Out of darkness didst create,
Shine upon us now, we pray,
While within Thy courts we wait;
Wean us from the works of night,
Make us children of the light.
2 Savior, who this day didst break
From the bondage of the tomb,
Bid our slumb'ring souls awake,
And dispel their doubt and gloom;
Let us, from our bonds set free,
Rise from sin and live to Thee.
3 Blessed Spirit, Comforter,
Sent this day from Christ on high,
Lord, on us Thy gifts confer,
Cleanse, illumine, sanctify;
All Thine influence shed abroad;
Lead us to the truth of God.
