|O Light that knew no dawn,|
That shines to endless day,
All things in earth and heav’n
Are brightened by thy ray;
No eye can to thy throne ascend,
Nor mind thy brightness comprehend.
Thy grace, O Father, give,
That I might serve in fear;
Above all gifts, I pray,
Grant me thy voice to hear;
From sin thy child in mercy free,
And let me dwell in light with thee.
