Theme: Morning and Opening Hymns
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 heavenly love, Shower down Thy radiance from above, And to our inward hearts convey The Holy Spirit's cloudless ray. 3. O joyful be the passing day With thoughts as clear as morning's ray, With faith like noontide shining bright, Our souls unshadowed by the night. 4. O Lord, with each returning morn Thine image to our hearts is born; O may we ever clearly see Our Savior and our God in Thee!
