1 O Splendor of God's glory bright,
from light eternal bringing light,
O Light, of light the fountain-spring,
O Day, all days illumining:
2 Come, very Sun of truth and love,
pour down your radiance from above,
and shed the Holy Spirit's ray
on all we think or do today.
3 Teach us to work with all our might,
put Satan's fierce assaults to flight;
turn all to good that seems most ill,
help us our calling to fulfill.
4 O joyful be the passing day,
our thoughts as pure as morning ray,
our faith like noonday's glowing height,
our souls undimmed by shades of night.
5 All praise to God the Father be,
all praise to Christ eternally,
whom with the Spirit we adore
forever and forevermore.
