Text Information:

The images of light in this text are drawn from the ancient Christian vesper hymn Phos hilaron, which dates from at least the 3rd century. (For other versions, see nos. 671 and 672.) That rather brief original hymn is augmented here in the third stanza by language based on the Sanctus.
