O Joyful Light, by whose clear shining only,
In trust we seek, and seeking find a way;
Strength of the tempted, Brother of the lonely,
From out our darkness bringest Thou the day.
Lo having Thee, we lose not one another,
Sundered, united, dying but to birth.
All worlds are one in Thee, O more than brother,
And one our family in heaven and earth
So shine in us, our little love reproving,
That souls of men may kindle at the flame,
The whole world’s hatred, broken by our loving
Shall bow to love, Thine everlasting name.
Therefore to Thee be praise and thanksgiving
To Father, Son and Comforter Divine:
We lift our voice and sing with all things living
O Light of Life, the Glory that is Thine.
