Hymn/Song Information

O gladsome light O grace




O gladsome light, O grace
of our Creator’s face,
The eternal splendor wearing;
celestial, holy blessed,
Our Savior Jesus Christ,
joyful in Your appearing!


As fades the day’s last light
we see the lamps of night,
Our common hymn outpouring,
O God of might unknown,
You, the incarnate Son,
and Spirit blessed adoring.


To You of right belongs
all praise of holy songs,
O Son of God, life giver.
You, therefore, O Most High,
The world does glorify
and shall exalt forever.

O gladsome Light, O grace
of God the Father's face,
the eternal splendor wearing;
celestial, holy, blest,
our Savior Jesus Christ,
joyful in thine appearing.


Now, ere day falleth quite,
we see the evening light,
our wonted hymn outpouring;
Father of might unknown,
thee, his incarnate Son,
and Holy Spirit adoring.


To thee of right belongs
all praise of holy songs,
O Son of God, Life-giver;
thee, therefore, O Most High,
the world doth glorify,
and shall exalt for ever.
