This day at thy creating word

William Walsham How, 1823-1897
Henry G. Ley, 1887-1962

1 This day at thy creating word first o'er the earth the light was poured: O Lord, this day upon us shine and fill our souls with light divine.

2 This day the Lord for sinners slain in might victorious rose again; O Jesus, may we lifted be from death of sin to life in thee!

3 This day the Holy Spirit came with fiery tongues of cloven flame; O Spirit, fill our hearts this day with grace to hear and grace to pray.

4 All praise to God the Father be, all praise, eternal Son, to thee, whom, with the Spirit, we adore forever and forevermore.
