1 O Light whose splendor thrills and gladdens
With radiance brighter than the sun,
Pure gleam of God's unending glory,
O Jesus, blest anointed One.
2 As twilight hovers near at sunset,
And lamps are lit, and children nod,
In evening hymns we lift our voices
To Father, Spirit, Son: one God.
3 In all life's brilliant, timeless moments,
Let faithful voices sing Your praise.
O Son of God, our life-bestower,
Whose glory lightens endless days.
