1.
Hail, gladdening Light, of his pure glory poured
from the immortal Father, heavenly, blest,
holiest of holies, Jesus Christ our Lord.

2.
Now we are come the sun's hour of rest,
the lights of evening round us shine,
we hymn the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

3.
Worthiest art Thou at all times to be sung
with undefiled tongue,
Son of our God, giver of life:
in all the world thy glories, Lord, they own.
