16. O Splendor of God's Glory Bright

1 O splendor of God's glory bright,
From light eternal bringing light,
Thou Light of light, light's living Spring;
True Day, all days illumining:

2 Come, very Sun of heaven's love,
In lasting radiance from above,
And pour the Holy Spirit's ray
On all we think or do today.

3 Confirm our will to do the right,
And keep our hearts from envy's blight;
Let faith her eager fires renew,
And hate the false, and love the true.

4 All praise to God the Father be,
All praise, eternal Son, to Thee,
Whom with the Spirit we adore
Forever and forevermore.

Amen.
