76. O Splendor of God's Glory Bright

1 O Splendor of God's glory bright,
from light eternal bringing light,
thou Light of life, light's living spring,
true Day, all days illumining:

2 come, Holy Sun of heav'nly love,
show'r down thy radiance from above,
and to our inward hearts convey
the Holy Spirit's cloudless ray.

3 And we the Father's help will claim,
and sing the Father's glorious name;
his powerful aid we will implore,
that we may stand to fall no more.

4 Be hallowed this and ev'ry day,
let meekness be our morning ray,
and faithful love our noonday light,
and hope our sunset, calm and bright.

5 O Lord, with each returning morn
thy image to our hearts is borne;
O may we ever clearly see
our Savior and our God in thee!
