1. O Jesus, Lord, of heavenly grace,
Thou Brightness of Thy Father's face,
Thou fountain of eternal light,
Whose beams disperse the shades of night.
2. Come, holy Sun of heavenly love,
Shower down Thy radiance from above,
And to our inward hearts convey,
The Holy Spirit's cloudless ray.
3. May He our actions deign to bless,
And loose the bonds of wickedness;
From sudden falls our feet defend,
And bring us to a prosperous end.
4. May faith, deep rooted in the soul,
Subdue our flesh, our minds control,
May guile depart, and discord cease,
And all within be joy and peace.
5. O hallowed be the approaching day;
Let meekness be our morning ray;
And faithful love our noonday light;
And hope our sunset. calm and bright.
6. O Christ, with each returning morn
Thine image to our hearts is borne:
O may we ever clearly see
Our Saviour and our God in Thee.
