158. The Splendor of God's Glory Bright

1 O Splendor of God's glory bright,
Who bringest forth the light from Light;
O Light of Light, the fountain spring;
O Day, our days illumining.

2 Come, very Sun of truth and love;
Come in Thy radiance from above,
And shed the Holy Spirit's ray
On all we think or do or say.

3 Teach us to work with all our might;
Put Satan's fierce assaults to flight;
Turn all to good that seems most ill;
Help us our calling to fulfill.

4 All praised to God the Father be;
All praise, beloved Son, to Thee;
Whom with the Spirit we adore,
For ever and for ever more.
