Translation by George Herbert Palmer (1842 - 1933)

Holy is the true light
Language: English  after the Latin 
    Holy is the True Light, and passing wonderful,
lending radiance to them that endured in the heat
of [the]1 conflict, from Christ they inherit a home of
unfading splendour, wherein they rejoice with
[gladness evermore]2. [Alleluia!]1
