1. O splendor of God's glory bright, O thou that bringest light from light; O Light of light, light's living spring, O day, all days illumining. 2. O thou true Sun, on us thy glance let fall in royal radiance; the Spirit's sanctifying beam upon our earthly senses stream. 3. The Father, too, our prayers implore, Father of glory evermore; the Father of all grace and might, to banish sin from our delight. 4. To guide whate'er we nobly do, with love all envy to subdue; to make ill fortune turn to fair, and give us grace our wrongs to bear.
