by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 - 1882)

O gladsome light
Language: English 
O gladsome light
Of the Father Immortal,
And of the celestial
Sacred and blessed
Jesus, our Saviour !

Now to the sunset
Again hast thou brought us:
And, seeing the evening
Twilight, we bless thee.
Praise thee, adore thee!

Father omnipotent!
Son, the Life-giver!
Spirit, the Comforter!
Worthy at all times
Of worship and wonder!
