O Splendor of God's Glory Bright

The United Methodist Hymnal Number 679
Text: Ambrose of Milan; trans. by Robert S. Bridges
Music: William Knapp
Tune: WAREHAM, Meter: LM

1.	O splendor of God's glory bright, 
	O thou that bringest light from light; 
	O Light of light, light's living spring, 
	O day, all days illumining. 

2.	O thou true Sun, on us thy glance 
	let fall in royal radiance; 
	the Spirit's sanctifying beam 
	upon our earthly senses stream. 

3.	The Father, too, our prayers implore,
	Father of glory evermore; 
	the Father of all grace and might, 
	to banish sin from our delight. 

4.	To guide whate'er we nobly do, 
	with love all envy to subdue; 
	to make ill fortune turn to fair, 
	and give us grace our wrongs to bear.
