1 O splendor of God's glory bright, O thou that bringest light from light, O Light of Light, light's living spring, O Day, all days illumining,

2 O thou true Sun of heavenly love, pour down thy radiance from above: the Spirit's sanctifying beam upon our earthly senses stream.

3 With prayer the Father we implore: O Father, glorious evermore, we plead with thee for grace and power to conquer in temptation's hour.

4 to guide whate'er we nobly do, with love all envy to subdue, and give us grace our wrongs to bear, to make ill-fortune turn to fair.

5 All laud to God the Father be; all praise, eternal Son, to thee; all glory to the Spirit raise in equal and unending praise.
