1 My Lord of light who made the worlds,
in wisdom you have spoken;
But those who heard your wise commands
your holy law have broken.

2 My Lord of love who knew no sin,
a sinner's death enduring;
for us you wore a crown of thorns,
a crown of life securing.

3 My Lord of life who came in fire
when Christ was high ascended:
your burning love is now released,
our days of fear are ended.

4 My Lord of lords, one Trinity,
to your pure name be given
all glory now and evermore,
all praise in earth and heaven.
