1.  Summer suns are glowing

Over land and sea,

Happy light is flowing

Bountiful and free,

Ev’rything rejoices

In the mellow rays,

All earth’s voices

Swell the psalm of praise.

2.  God’s free mercy streameth

Over all the world,

And His banner gleameth

Ev’rywhere unfurled,

Broad and deep and glorious

As the heaven above,

Shines in might victorious

His eternal Love.

3.  Lord, upon our blindness

Thy pure radiance pour;

For thy loving-kindness

Make us love Thee more;

And when clouds are drifting

Dark across our sky,

Then, the veil uplifting,

Father, be Thou nigh.

4.  We will never doubt Thee,

Though Thou veil Thy light:

Life is dark without Thee;

Death with Thee is bright.

Light of Light! shine o’er us

On our pilgrim way;

Go Thou still before us

To the endless day.
