1.  O light, O Trinity most blest!

True God, supreme and ever best;

As now the sun of day departs,

Outpour Thy beams upon our hearts.

2.  To Thee at morn our hymns we raise,

At evening offer prayer and praise;

And Thou our glorious theme shalt be

Now and through all eternity.

3.  As darkness deepens, Lord, do Thou

A night of quiet rest bestow;

From all our sins grant us release,

And bless us with Thy perfect peace.
