Hymn/Song Information

Brightness of thy Father's glory shall




Brightness of thy Fatherís glory,
Shall thy praise unuttered lie?
Dread, my soul such guilty silence
Praise the Lord who came to die.


Hosts of angels sang thy coming,
Watchful shepherds learned their lays;
Shame would cover me ungrateful,
Should my tongue refuse its praise.


From the highest throne in glory,
To the cross of deepest woe,
All to ransom guilty captives!
Flow from praise, for ever flow.


By that cross immortal Saviour,
Thou hast won thy glorious throne:
Soon return and reign for ever;
Be the universe thine own.


---Alternative verses---


Brightness of the Fatherís glory,
Shall thy praise unuttered lie?
Break, each tongue,such guilty silence
Praise the Lord who came to die.


Brightness of the Fatherís glory,
Shall thy praise unuttered lie?
Break, my tongue,such guilty silence
Sing the Lord who came to die.


Hosts of angels sang thy coming,
Watchful shepherds learned their lays;
Shame would cover us ungrateful,
Should our tongue refuse its praise.


Did archangels sang thy coming?
Did the shepherds learned their lays?
Shame would cover me ungrateful,
Should my tongue refuse its praise.


Re-ascend, immortal Saviour!
Leave thy footstool, take thy throne;
Yet return, and reign for ever;
Be the kingdom all thine own!


Re-ascend, immortal Saviour!
Leave thy footstool, take thy throne;
Thence return, and reign for ever;
Be the kingdom all thine own!
