O Splendor of God's Glory Bright

Melody - O heilige Dreifaltigkeit

1. O splendor of God's glory bright,
From light eternal bringing light;
Thou Light of life, light's living 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 her eager fires renew,
And hate the false, and love the true.

4. O joyful be the passing day
With thoughts as clear as morning's ray,
With faith like noontide shining bright,
Our souls unshadow'd by the night.

5. Dawn's glory gilds the earth and skies;
Do thou, our perfect Morn, arise;
The Father's help His children claim,
And sing the Father's glorious name. Amen.
