O One with God the Father   1 comment

Words by William Walsham How (1823-1897)


1.  O one with God the Father

In majesty and might,

The brightness of his glory,

Eternal Light of Light,

O’er this our home of darkness

Thy rays are streaming now;

The shadows flee before thee,

The world’s true Light art thou.

2.  Yet,  Lord, we see but darkly;

O heavenly Light, arise,

Dispel these mists that shroud us,

And hide thee from our eyes.

We long to track the footprints

That thou thyself hast trod;

We long to see the pathway

That leads to thee, our God.

3.  O Jesus, shine around us

With radiance of thy grace;

O Jesus, turn upon us

The brightness of thy face.

We need no star to guide us

As on our way we press,

If thou thy light vouchsafest,

O Sun of Righteousness.
