Theme: Evening Hymns

1.  O Light whose splendor thrills and gladdens
    With radiance brighter than the sun,
    Pure gleam of God's unending glory,
    O Jesus, blest anointed One;

2.  As twilight hovers near at sunset,
    And lamps are lit, and children nod,
    In evening hymns we lift our voices
    To Father, Spirit, Son: one God.

3.  In all life's brilliant, timeless moments,
    Let faithful voices sing Your praise,
    O Son of God, our life-bestower, 
    Whose glory lightens endless days.
