1 Hail, gladdening Light, of his pure glory poured
who is the immortal Father, heavenly, blessed,
Holiest of holies, Jesus Christ our Lord.

2 Now we have come to the sun's hour of rest;
the lights of evening round us shine;
we hymn the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit divine.

3 Worthiest are you at all times to be sung with uncorrupted tongue,
Son of our God, giver of life alone;
therefore in all the world we make your glories known.

Jubilate Hymns version of Hail, gladdening light, of his pure glory poured John Keble (1792 - 1866) translated from Phos hilaron hagias doxes sometimes attributed to Athenogenes (fl. 2nd century)
