O Trinity of blessed light

Representative Text

1 O Trinity, most blesséd light,
O Unity of sov'reign might,
as now the fiery sun departs,
shed thou thy beams within our hearts.

2 To thee our morning song of praise,
to thee our evening prayer we raise;
then may our souls for evermore
in lovely reverence adore.

3 All praise to God the Father be,
all praise, eternal Son, to thee,
whom with the Spirit we adore,
for ever and for evermore.

Amen.

Both father and mother are said to have been "very pronounced Evangelicals." The father died in 1823, and the boy's early training was entirely under the direction of his mother, his deep attachment for whom is shown by the fact that, not long before his death, he wrote of her as "a mother to whom I owe more than I can express." He was educated at Sherborne Grammar School, and was afterwards… Go to person page >

The earliest extant version attr…
