O Splendor Of God’s Glory Bright

O Splendor Of God’s Glory Bright

O Splendor of God’s glory bright,
from light eternal bringing light,
light’s fountain and eternal spring,
true Day, all days illumining.

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.

Confirm our will to do the right,
and keep our hearts from envy’s blight.
Let faith its eager fires renew,
and hate the false and love the true.

Be hallow’d this and ev’ry day;
let meekness be our morning ray,
and faithful love our noonday light,
our hope, our sunset, calm and bright.

O Christ, with each returning morn,
thine image to our hearts is borne.
Oh, may we ever clearly see
our Savior and our God in thee. Amen.
