219. Hail! gladdening Light, of his pure glory poured

1 Hail gladdening Light, of his pure glory poured
who is the immortal Father, heavenly, blest,
Holiest of Holies, Jesus Christ, our Lord.

2 Now we are come to the sun's hour of rest,
the lights of evening round us shine,
we hymn the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit divine.

3 Worthiest art thou at all times to be sung
with undefiléd tongue,
Son of our God, Giver of life, alone;
therefore in all the world thy glories, Lord, we own.
