1 O Splendor of God's glory bright,
from light eternal bringing light,
light’s fountain and eternal spring,
true Day, all days illumining.
2 Come, very Sun of heaven’s love,
in lasting radiance from above,
and pour the Holy Spirit’s ray
on all we think or do today.
3 "Confirm our will to do the right,
and keep our hearts from envy’s blight.
Let faith its eager fires renew,
and hate the false and love the true.
4 Be hallow’d this and ev’ry day;
let meekness be our morning ray,
and faithful love our noonday light,
our hope, our sunset, calm and bright.
5 O Christ, with each returning morn,
thine image to our hearts is borne.
Oh, may we ever clearly see
our Savior and our God in thee. Amen.
