Brightness of the Father's glory,
God of God, and Light of Light!
Scatter with thy saving knowledge
all the shadows from our sight.
When our eyes grow dim and weary,
may our souls on thee depend,
who with thy right hand vouchsafest
all thy faithful, to defend.
When the body's feeble nature
bows, oppressed by grief and pain,
help our souls to rise uninjured,
soaring up to thee again.
Only hope of man's salvation!
Hear us, help us, when we pray ;
those whom thou by death hast purchased
cast not in thy wrath away.
Glory be to God the Father,
glory be to God the Son,
glory to the Holy Spirit,
co-eternal Three in One.
James Russell Woodford (1820-1885)
