O Light that knew no dawn

O Light that knew no dawn,
That shines to endless day,
All things in earth and heaven
Are lustred by Thy ray;
No eye can to Thy throne ascend,
Nor mind Thy brightness comprehend.

O Thou that hearest prayer, Attend our humble cry

O Thou that hearest prayer,
Attend our humble cry;
And let Thy servants share
Thy blessings from on high;
We plead the presence of Thy word;
Grant us Thy Holy Spirit, Lord.
